Do Indian Blue Pied Peafowl breed true?

No. An Indian Blue Pied X Pied cross will result in 25% white (TT), 50% pied (TP), and 25% dark pied (PP) offspring.

Dark pied offspring appear very similar to the Indian Blues, but have some white on their wing primaries. They also develop much like an Indian Blue, except for their shoulders which start white and do not completely change to black until its second year. When these birds later breed to Whites, 100% of the offspring are pied.
