If maybe I can breed them, my calculation with 6 peahen is around 180egg/season, maybe I can get export permit, hopefully. My dad helped his friend who own arowana red (fish) farm to get export permit several years ago, so I quite pptimistic here. Above all, I love these birds..
Why not to create On Java an OFFICIAL STUD-BOOK of Pavo Muticus muticus javanensis ?
You have an excellent example here with Reinhold's farm :
Or Wolfgang :
At least 4/5 different blood lines of peafowl... peafowl coming from Baluran, Alas Purwo, Ujung Kulon ... etc ...
You will be the Official conservatory farm of Indonesia ....sale to the Ministry of forest every year dozens of young peacocks.
I bet you could get help from international organizations for the protection of birds.
There is a side "tourism" that could be interesting!
