    Hi everyone,
    I am having a blond moment and for the life of me cannot remember what "split to peach" mean? I have four of them: one IB, IB Peid, Cameo and White.

    Has the Peach gene hidden in them.

    Peach is a sex linked gene which means ONLY the males can be split for Peach. Females can only be Peach or not at all, zero, nada, not even anywhere on their genes. If someone tries to tell you a female is split Peach(or purple or cameo, any sex linked gene) they don't know what they're talking about or may be trying to pull a fast sale.

    If you have split peach male, you are going to get peach hens, no matter what you breed him to. Only way to get peach sons is to breed either a split peach or peach male with a peach female.
