    White eye is one of the patterns that peafowl express. The others are blackshoulder (solid wing), barred wing, pied, and silver pied. (Some discussion on whether white is a pattern or color) White eye is co dominant so he may pass it off to any of his offspring. A blue hen of any type would work good, although a white eye hen would be nice.

    Is he pied also because of the white on his back and wings or do all white eyes have that?
