    Here are 3 types of Blue spalding black shoulder peahens:

    [​IMG].... Chessboard [​IMG]
    [​IMG] .... green/blue .
    [​IMG] .... red buff.

    How to create them? .... the chance?

    Your 'Chessboard' are most easily made with regular Spauldings. The Green/Blue you picture is just a higher percentage of Spaulding. But the Red Buff is made with Purple BS.

    No ... no ... !

    Like i say ALL are BLUE spalding black shoulder peahens the first one i know now where she was born ... not at Winged Magnolia! And I shall know her ascendants tomorrow!

    Red buff = a blue variation !
    Blue BS peahen X green peacock = 50% spalding Blue split BS.(I did and I have no other color than the Blue!)
    50% spalding Blue split BS X 50% spalding Blue split BS = 50% spalding Blue BS who can be brown = red Buff .... or green/blue like the second picture.... why ?

    The 'Chessboard' I thought it appeared with Blue BS seiplel - at Winged magnolia they have this type of bird ... but not because the bird is not born there ... they bought it!

    Ray has some really nice birds. His Spaulding Pieds are very nice.

    Ray says ... 'Midnight black shoulder male x spalding black shoulder hen.'

    It doesn't have to be Midnight, it does have to be spaulding, but the reddest ones are out of Purple.[​IMG]
