nope not close enough!! lol
Forgot mah picture I took of the "new" outdoor brooder. It's not the prettiest, but it fits everybody and it's warm and now the ducks can't spill water everywhere...as easily! We'll see if it holds up to tonight's temperature drop with that 250watt bulb and the plastic. I have two more light fixtures I can put in if I need to.
Thank you! I like to look to make future plans and try and do what it takes to get there. Right now I only have Indian Blue and White peafowl. When I get a large enough farm I hope to be breeding 14 varieties. I would like to be breeding Indian Blue, Black Shoulder, Pied, Silver Pied, Cameo, Peach, Bronze, Charcoal, Purple, Opal, Taupe, Violeta, and Java Green peafowl. I hope to have three trios per variety so I would have 126 breeding peafowl. I would like you to look at photos of all 14 varieties and then let me know which do you think people would like to have a pair or trio of. I just like planning out the future. The Java Green I would probably not donate because they are not a good choice for beginners. Green peafowl are very weather touchy. They don't do well with temps below 40 degrees so the person would need heating, hens tend to be more protective of their nests and males can be more protective of their hens compared to the Indian species. Or I would do a certificate of some sort.
I cant wait to watch this happen!!! they are so lovely !!!
