    I have a white (not albino) peahen and a blue peacock... she is 4 and he is almost 2. I'm hoping to get some chicks in a year or two...
    Does anyone know what they might look like???
    I've heard everything from Spaulding, to Pied, to Black Shoulder... It'd difficult to look up pictures on google b/c it seems nobody really knows.
    Anyone know or have an idea?

    Good you know she is not albino, there are no albino peafowl. Their offspring will be IB split white so they will have a few white primary feathers.
