    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! What a shock that must have been! I'm afraid I'm not a pea person but I'm sure will enjoy the pea section, here is the link ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/51/peafowl

    Enjoy your time here on BYC :frow

    I know occasionally there are chicken hen x guinea babies but, they seldom live more than a year. I would imagine it would be the same for this guy/girl ? Please put up your photo at "what breed or gender is this," and see what the very experienced people & those with a lot of genetic knowledge have to say. BTW beautiful chick/poult ???

    Yes mother is a white chicken named Betty and peacock is Caballero. We only have 1 rooster and he is white. None of the other chicks look anything like this little nugget

    I'm 99.9% sure we have one rooster and he is white. We have 3 peacocks, 2 Indigo and 1 Black and no pea hens. The mother is a little white chicken.
