If I have a Cameo hen and a Purple male, can I make Peach from crossing them and breeding back?

Not necessarily. These colors ( I call them pastels ) are all pretty much linked together and might produce any of the 3 ,,peach, purple and cameo at times . These colors (mostly cameo and some peach ) have a death gene ( birds start to turn white and go blind ) in them and some people will not breed them anymore. Go ahead and see what turns out after a few years.. That is the fun part, getting to see what turns our, keep good records. Out cross will help maybe to get out the death gene. I have a 75% cameo spalding and a cameo hen and that is about all I have left. I have a 75% spalding split to peach and have hatched both cameo and peach faemales from him. Nothing is for sure in birds when you deal with splits. connerhills

Interesting.
I still have a lot to learn on breeding peas. I fear it may take me another 20 years to learn as I do better with experience but I don't want to breed birds that are likely to have problems either.
