I purchased these birds last year and was told they were Midnight black shoulder. I am pretty sure the male isn't a midnight, but what do you think about the hen? I just want to know what I have for breeding. I don't really care, they are beautiful and I wouldn't trade them for anything. The last pic is him with my IB male behind him.

The male is not midnight color but he could be split to midnight. The hen may or may not be a midnight because there is no way to tell by looking at them there is not enought color on the neck. When I bought my midnight BS years ago the hen was sold as a split but I have never produce anything but midnight birds are at least all the male has been midnight color. There is not a breeder around that can tell a midnight BS hen from a split or regular BS hen that why most breeder sell the hens as splits.

Thank you both. By looking at pictures I could not tell the difference between a BS hen and a midnight BS hen. Glad to hear I am not the only one!

Oh well, I love them just the same.

Below in the picture I have a Midnight Blackshoulder white eye yearling peacock and in the background I have a pair of blackshoulders split to midnight. Sometimes you can't tell whos really split intill they have some peachicks!

These are really beautiful! I think they'll do well for breeding. Dental Milpitas

this looks like a black shoulder hen to me George at Connerhills said that my hen that looks like this is a black shoulder and she looks almost identical. except mine has a emerald green patch on the back of her neck right on that tan ring
