This is "Spotty" a 2 year old white male peacock. since he was about 6 months old he has had 2 dark feathers....... He is starting to grow a nice train for a 2 yr old.... will be interesting to see if he gets any color in his train. He came from my white pen...... which had also produced IB white eye chicks the previous year....

Oooh, interesting guy. I'm already getting excited about breeding my white male next year, just to see what some of the chicks will look like. Does it happen often, these 1 or 2 colored feathers? What does it signify?

Well, it seems that some of my whites are out of silver pied... since I am getting occasional colored birds out of an all white pen. When he was a chick the color was hardly noticable.... and I was sure they would molt out. But as a mature boy, the spots are more noticiable.

This year I had my first peachicks and guess - My first white chick has small bare spot on his head. His both parents are white. I noticed this spot at age of two months. Now the chick is 3,5 month and the spot is getting bigger. As far as I know there are no silver pied peafowls in Australia, so I am confused.
Can some one tell me if this fact will help me to breed something different from white or pied. Embarassed Question

The markings are just about like my Sunspot's markings Cool
He is from green spalding parents and has two green sisters.
His father is obviously heterozygous for white but his mother
does not look like she could have white offspring Confused
