    He's beautiful/ Could get 37.5%, by crossing a 1/2 spalding with a bird with one parent that was 1/2 spalding. But its carrying a lot yellow and orange around his eye for that low a %.

    That kind of feathers can be silver ? ... i know they can be Opal ... but silver ?

    At the peahen Silver Pied, neck feathers are silver.
    By the males only feathers of the saddle can be Silver Pied?
