    I have someone who want to get some spalding chicks from me and he wants to see how they will look like when they grow up, and since my chicks came from a spalding bronze father and a spalding hen, i can't show him how they will really look like when they get older. If anyone could post some pictures for spalding peacocks with 50% or 75% or lower percentage green blood and its okay with you to show him the pictures i will be glad for your help. Thanks

    I know your birds are from Rocking BAB so maybe some photos from them would be good too?

    I would say so. He does seem very high % to me. They were definitely very tall too. A lot of spaldings don't seem to have the height of green peafowl, but these did.

    Isn't an Emerald peafowl a basically a Spalding but with more green blood than blue? Wouldn't it be like breeding a green to a blue, then taking that Spalding and breeding it to a green and then would it be an Emerald? Because I look at images of them and most of the photos look like green peafowl. Also here is Thora Spalding Split to White.
