Guess you are talking about the Silver Pied.

You have three gene. White , Pied, and White Eye. All silver pied are white eyes.

Silver Pied X Silver Pied = 25% white , 50% pied , and 25% dark Pied. All will be White Eye. Even the white, just Don't see the white eye ,because white mask all colors and patterns.

Thank you very much. Can you tell me what the Silver Pied India Blue peacock crossed on cameo, black shoulder, and india blue hens will produce? I do not have a silver pied hen. What is the best ratio for cocks to hens with regard to fertility?

4 to 6 peahens.

Silver pied X blue hen = blue chicks split pieds, and white

Silver pied X blackshoulder hen = blue chicks split pied ,and white and all split blackshoulder.

Silver pied X cameo hen = blue chicks split pied and white, all males split cameo.

You will get some white eyes out of all three matings.
Chicks splt white will have some white flight feathers.
