I have a Purple peacock but do not have any other Purples. Can I breed a hen of another color to him and get more Purples? By breeding back, of course. I know F1 would probably not yield Purple.

WKA... Yes, you can breed him to any color of hen and should produce females that will all be purple and all males that will be split to purple and what ever color of hen you used in the cross. ( F1 ) These males should look like blues. .. connerhills

Thank you, that helps me a lot to figure out what I may can work towards. Since I have inherited so many birds I prefer to use what I have rather than buy more.
