    This pair is for sale, but they think that they are Purple Neck Brown shouldered. Is that even a breed? If not what are they thanks!

    Yep I would say Purple blackshoulder just like Steve. I wish purple peafowl would actually have a black shoulder instead of brown, I think it would look prettier.

    Black Shoulder is a term given to a bird that does not have a bared wing. A silver pied BS pattern is mostly white but it does not have baring in the wings. A purple black shoulder pattern bird just does not have a bard wing pattern ( or Wild type pattern ) This I think come from way back when it was thought that this new bird ( at that time) was a color and not a pattern, It more or less developed in the wild as well as the white did. All of the newer colors and patterns have been mostly from mutations or cross breeding as in the different patterns we see now. George
