Type of mutation: Cameo Silver Pieds combine the cameo color with the silver pied pattern.
Peacock Coloration: Males are mostly white, with random patches of non-iridescent brown cameo coloration. The train is mostly white, with some brown colored eye feathers with white in their centers.
Peahen Coloration: Females are mostly white, with random patches of light brown cameo coloration, especially on the neck and shoulders.
Do they breed true?: No. The cameo color breeds true, but the silver pied pattern does not. Chicks from a pure pair of cameo silver pieds will be approximately 25% white (but dominant for cameo), 50% cameo silver pieds, and 25% cameo white eyeds. The cameo color remains sex linked, so breeding a male of this type to any hen will result in daughters that are cameo.
