I am looking into purchasing Peacock Pheasants. After reading about them, I still have some questions that I am hoping people on here will be able to answer. I recall reading that the Grey Peacock Pheasants do well in small to medium aviaries/pens. Why is that and what is wrong with keeping them in a large aviary with other birds? Since I do live the north, I would be able to provide a heated area for them during the cold winter months. If I was able to get a two egg clutch of hatching eggs from the Grey Peacock Pheasants, how hard would it be to hatch the eggs out using a cochin bantam broody hen? IF they hatch, then how hard are the chicks to raise, and are there any tips on raising them?
I really like the Grey Peacock Pheasants but I find the Palwan Peacock Pheasants to be nicer. What are the main differences between the two, are Palwans harder to raise or something like that? For any type of Peacock Pheasants, what is the average price for them?
Lastly, what is important to me is their behavior and friendliness. Do they get friendly enough like tragopans?
Don't forget to post pictures of your birds if you have any!
