    Do they have a java gene in them or is it something else?

    Spalding peafowl are hybrids. They are a cross between the two wild types of peafowl, the green and blue. Some spaldings look more like greens, some look more like blues, and some look exactly in-between. It all depends on the amount of green blood they have. The higher the green blood, the more green they will look.

    Here is some info on spaldings:

    They are tall like greens too and will normally have yellow on their face, a tighter crest, ect.[​IMG]
