Cameo Spalding

Type of mutation: Cameo Spaldings are hybrids of Blue and Green Peafowl, with the Cameo color gene.
Peacock Coloration: Cameo Spaldings exhibit typical brown Cameo coloration. However, they are taller and leaner than regular Cameos, with more color found on the facial skin, tighter crests and a more streamlined appearance.
Peahen Coloration: Females look similar to regular Cameos colorwise, but have the Spalding body type and facial features.
Do they breed true?: Yes, the Cameo coloration will breed true in its typical sex-linked fashion. The amount of Green traits does vary a bit from bird to bird, as with typical Spaldings.
