If a Burmese green is crossed with a BS hen what is the correct terminology for the offspring and what will they look like? Also if the BG is crossed with a Cameo BS (or Oaten) hen what will those offspring be called and what will they look like? Thanks for any input!

Will try ... If a BG male is crossed with BS hen they will produce ( 50 % ) spaldings not looking like the male nor the female (look like India Blue with some green color in them) .Both male and female. They will be spalding split to BS pattern. If the BG is bred to a Cameo BS female they will produce a Spalding ,both male and female and the males will be split to Cameo and B S and the female will be split to BS. The Oaten is not a recognized pattern and is not a color. Most breeders are aware of the name change and see the bird for what it is. George

Hi there! Well we have hatched 2 eggs from the Burmese Green/Cameo Black Shoulder pair and they do indeed appear to be marked like India Blues, however one has a couple white flights. The CBS hen has hatched many chicks over the years and she has always been paired w a BS, no chicks have ever had white flights before. Is this typical in spaldings?

No not normal ,but it is not unusual for the white flight to come from one of the backgrounds of birds as you really dont know the past of most peafowl. You can breed to a white later on and see what you get or from a pied.

Thanks for the info. Now here's a scary thought, for me anyway, prior to moving the hen in with the BG male she was in a pen with a 9-10 month old white male, I wasn't too concerned about them breeding because of his age. Do you think it's possible that he could have been fertile at such a young age? It would explain the white flights, and mean the chicks I'm assuming are spaldings are not. Sad
