    If its the bibbed black that shows the 5 month progression on? That is a bibbed black, that was born dusky, with the white headed gene. This(the white head) is dominate, so if you breed him, it will come though.

    by true wild pied do you mean your bird is of ferrel decent? or wild type/black? I would say wild type. I do have those, but more photos means better photos so thank you.

    I saved that pic to my files and tagged it as gypsy faced black. Remember that when a black has new feathers they are black, as they get closer and closer to molt those feathers dye off and turn brown, and finely really brown and fall out. Sun also fades colors, so this black, just not a fresh molt kept in a show pen.

    This IS a wild type black. It will have the gypsy markings and all.

    The wings have been clipped so the white pen feather is missing.
