My DH and I have had many discussions about Pied birds. I fall on the side of wanting to see a beautiful single colored birds, I tend to like India blue Black shoulders over regular india blues for that reason. However, we have a Opal that is not a BS and he is just as beautiful to me. When I see a Pied I see a spotted bird, the spots to me are imperfections, like someone has thrown bleach on the birds and damaged parts of the bird.(maybe because i am a red head with freckles I have personal bias against spots). We have gotten chicks that are pied this year and I just really am having a hard time thinking that they are "great". however I am curious how the one with evil looking eyebrows will turn out. My DH thinks that Pied and white eyes are beautiful. He dotes on pictures and he is so excited with our our Pied baby chicks. He tries to motivate me to like the new chicks because they will throw solid birds in the future, but that is 3+ years down the road. So Why do you like pied?
