    They look really nice, congrats [​IMG]

    I would have thought the blackshoulder was a male, because of the amount of black coming through on the back...?

    That's why I put a qustion mark after hen, I have had some dark like that then the grew lighter the older they got but this could be a male.

    I didn't think you could get a Black Shoulder from a India Blue Male and a Cameo Female.......Perhaps I misunderstood this???

    Thanks so much for the posts , it helps me out...I must admit I know lots more about the mini donkey that peafowl but I love them so I wanted a few!

    These are the chicks, do you have pictures of the parents? because the white colored one is a Black Shoulder.

    Quote:Or he could be split to Peach, and if there is a BS baby, he and at least one of the females must be split to BS (or actually be BS and misidentified).
