Hi ALL
I RECENTLY ACQUIRED NEW INDIAN BLUE BOY WITH ONE WHOLE WHITE WING FEATHER ON EACH SIDE EITHER SIDE! His mother was a WHITE peahen. His WHOLE TALE IS BLUE except for these wing feathers

What do I need to breed him with for some white chicks or pied chicks? What will I have if I just breed him with Indian blue will there be any white?

I think that means he is split for white and won't beed pieds unless you mate him to a pied

Hi, what you have is a split to white. If you cross you bird to a white hen you should get 50% White and 50% Indian Blue split White

also generally as we approach breeding season mature hens may become harder to purchase. so best of luck.

Thanks for that- will have to wait until breeding season is over maybe I will find one!

A split- that is very cool!
