    I bought this chick from a fellow that had all his colors mixed together. There was IB, Java and Purple. Do you think this chick could be part or all Java? Thanks for any ideas.

    I would have said the same.

    How about my avatar.
    She is either java or high % (7/8). Is there any way of telling?

    Here she is at about 4 months. Her face is intense yellow now.

    Here young peacocks for sale on the bird market in Jakarta - I guess they are true muticus muticus!

    Oh those peachicks are beautiful! Wow they look way different from the green peachicks you see pictures of, I bet those are pure straight from the wild maybe.
