This usually means a peafowl that has color everywhere except for a few white
feathers, often on wingtips. But the ones that I have that are that way are just
heterozygous for white and probably not pied at all (it is very hard to get at the facts)

I got some chicks that are a little lighter than India blue chicks with white wing features that came from a silverpied pair. So could they be dark pieds ?

I know exactly nothing about silver pieds so we need somebody else to answer that.
The UPA recognises 225 different colors and I have never seen most of them

Lol I hear you! A lot of the colors are confusing when it comes to sex link genes and all of that :/
