    I bought the eggs off ebay. The add said most of them were silver pied with a couple blue pied and purple pied in the mix. So at this point i would trust your opinion more than the seller of the eggs.

    By chance can you tell sex or do i need to wait a little longer. At this point i think Pete is male. I can get a better pic of flight feathers if you need them.

    little young to sex......it could be purple bs pied. hard to tell if it has area of white feathers. but if seller was right i would say purple bs pied , good odds a hen , as purple is sex link , so in a mixed pen a purple peacock would have to mate with a purple hen to produce a purple male chick.


    Ok with that infor i will say purple black shoulder pied hen.
