Hi, I am new to Peafowl, ( Have raised other types of Birds for years )
I have a Male that was sold to me as a India Blue, But he doesn't seem to have much blue, i was told that has he gets older the blue will show more.
The female was sold to me as a Jade Spalding, they are both about 7 Months old the female is a few weeks older then the male.

Thanks

Male





















Female

He was picked on at the breeders home, I am hoping it'll grow back.

Mine still seem so far behind everyone Else's in there color development, I also see a lot of green in my IB's Neck, and My IBBS still has so much white and other colors going on, my IBSP and my 2 Hens seem good to go color wise.

The male looks like he was hit by a fan blade as a young peachick.
I have seen similar wounds and they were from incubators that did not have the fan blades covered and the chicks suffer severe head wounds, blinded, or even killed.

It makes me glad that there is NO fan in the Hovabator where my chicken incubated
peahen eggs go to be hatched Confused .
But I can easily see the green spalding color in the necks of both of the juveniles.
