As with everything "new" many want to get "on board" so to speak and be the first one on their block to have the newest up to the minute gadget,ect.And in Peafowl it's always the first to have a new or rare color.My topic here is regarding the "peach" color mutation in peas. I have spent countless hours on the phone this week as well as sending out e-mails looking for breeding aged Peach birds,,as well as Cameo's,,,course I know it's the worst time of year to find them,,but from some of the conversations I've had with some very reputable breeders,,,seems the general public cannot truly distinguish the two colors.I've heard some people sell actual Cameo's because the chicks they hatched looked slightly darker than previous hatches,,,thus they consider them to now be peach.I spoke with 1 very,very distinguished breeder who has travelled thousands of miles to buy "Peach" birds,only to find they was indeed,actual cameo's. I realize not everyone sees a color exactly as someone else.You could compare it to a smell,,not everyone "smells" the scent of something the same as another person does,,this is why noone can get a patent on cologne or perfume,, So my question is???? Of the breeders here who say they have "Peach" peafowl,,,how do you know they are indeed "Peach" and not a possible darker variation of the Cameo color? I own Peach and Yellow Golden pheasants,,,and there is a remarkable diffrence in color,almost strikingly diffrent.But is there such a slight variance in color tones,or hue to confuse many breeders into believing their Cameo's can somehow churn out a slightly darker chick,thus allowing that chick to be classified as "Peach"?
