    Peahen IB Montana X Pavo Muticus = ?

    Spalding 50% Montana ... males and females !
    description : birds bigger than their mother ... color of their mother ... we can count the feathers in the neck because they are in the form of scales! yellow face ... etc ...?

    you will never get spaldings 50% ( ◄ color ' blue' ) Split Montana ! .... why ?

    There are today 19 recognized colors!
    19 colors minus 4 Sex-linked Colors (Purple, Cameo, Peach, and Sonja's Violeta) that work a little differently! = 15 colors.
    Peahens from those 15 different colors X Pavo Muticus = ?

    Spalding 50% from those 15 different colors ... males and females !
    description : birds bigger than their mother ... color of their mother ... we can count the feathers in the neck because they are in the form of scales! yellow face ... etc ...?

    Peahen Pavo Muticus X peacock IB Purple = ?
    Spalding 50% Purple females.
    description : birds bigger than their mother ... color of their father ... we can count the feathers in the neck because they are in the form of scales! yellow face ... etc ...

    + spalding BLUE 50% males split Purple .
    description : birds bigger than their mother ... color almost of their father ( not Purple) ... we can count the feathers in the neck because they are in the form of scales! yellow face ... etc ...
    I am wrong ?

    They show the color of the mother and in theory they have received only ONE color gene!

    Muticus male X IB peahen = spalding 1
    Muticus male X IB Black shoulder peahen = spalding 2

    The phenotype of spalding 1 and spalding 2 are the same ... they are identical ?
    The starting 'material' is different!
    The genotype is probably different!

    Pavo cristatus X pavo cristatus Black shoulder = pavo cristatus split black shoulder ... the peachick totally identical to the parents ... the split BS is invisible on the outside it is only in its genome.

    Pavo muticus X pavo cristatus Black shoulder = an Hybrid
    doesn't look like the father and doesn't look like the mother ... a different phenotype ... and a different genotype.
    Is it split black shoulder?
