    Hello, I recently got a 5-6 month old peachick. I'm pretty sure it's a he, but I have no idea what kind he is. The old owner didn't know either. His little crown has some white feathers and his whole belly is white. But I don't know if that's because he's a chick or that's his colors. When we first got him he had a little white on his legs and a couple blue/green feathers om the back of his neck. Now nearly his whole neck is colorful and the bright feathers are Laced in white and the spots on his legs have engulfed his whole underside. Anyone know what kind he is?

    Cool beans, thanks, guys! Just out of curiosity though, is the one white crown feather normal to the Blues or is it just a baby feather kind of thing?

    I have only had 2 peachicks in the last two years with one white crown feather and no white on the birds except the wings and it molted out to the normal color but my pieds i kept that have white in the crown area they aways kept their white crown feathers.

    Guess it will just have to be a suprise [​IMG]

    Awesome, thanks so much. I can't wait to see if he keeps his white crown feather and white belly. :D

    Your pretty boy may keep that white crown feather but will definitely lose the white belly!
