    This is my older male, he's going to be 4 this year. He was sold to me in the fall of his first year as a BS but apparently he is pied. The tops of his wings are like a faded flat black with some white on them. and where I see pictures of peacocks with rust coloring on the outer end of the wings, his are more like a light tan. This is the best I have right now that I have for a picture... Thoughts? (He is the one in the back).

    Possibly dark pied if you don't notice any white in his train.

    Dark pied or maybe split white. Not pied. He should lose the white in the back. Bs keep a few until 4 yr old.

    Quote:get them as chicks and see how long it takes him to notice they aren't chickens? Then look baffled and say the order must have been messed up... [​IMG]

    I was out looking at my guy and I think he lost most of the white specs in his wings but the color there is still a duller faded looking color. Is that normal for BS?
