    just thought I'd share DH's newest pride and joy...a peach peachick hatched from our pen with a silver pied split peach male, two black shoulder peach hens and silver pied hens. pictures (and my unsteady hand doing so) aren't doing this baby justice, sooo cute! [​IMG]

    first pic is just the peach, second is with a pied (for contrast).

    X2, we do not have any cameo peafowl and are quite familiar with the lineage of the parents.
