    Do you have any other pictures of them where we can see their crests? They look like India Blue hens. The hen in the back has a white throat patch.

    I can see why pedda says spalding, the girl in the front looks like she has that spalding "eyeliner" effect!
    Also the larger amount of white on her face reminds me of our split to bs hen.
    The girl in the back definitely has a white throat patch = not 100% ib...

    Better pictures would make this easier! [​IMG]

    I don't have that much experience with peacocks but : do IB peahens have the eyeliner and white face too ? Cause mine have it and the lady I bought them from told me she's an India Blue and my friend is a breeder and said is an IB and also that they have green neck not blue ...is this true ????

    My IB hen, taken yesterday. She is molting and has her third eye lid over her eye. I am not sure of her age but she is at least 3 years and probably closer to 6 or more.
