That is really awesome!

8 peafowl: 1 India Blue, 1 blackshoulder, 1 pied, 2 splits (pied or white), 3 whites.

Proud to be Native American and happy to have wonderful family & friends.

OSCELLATED TURKEY ©Chris Chafer (sandpiper2) Location:Chris writes: “This species is restricted to the Yucatan Peninsula region that covers south-eastern Mexico, northern Belize and north-eastern Guatemala. In Tikal they have become relatively tame around the camping area and groups of up to 20 strut around the place as if they own it.” Status: Near Threatened Facts: The Oscellated Turkey has never been domesticated.

Don't have the link, she just made a comment in one of the threads in the turkey forum, but I could try to find her for you if you want.

What I really want to see is an Ostrich x Peafowl hybrid so that I can have a big peacock that I can ride on! XD I will call them "Peacock Dragons".

Ohhh I'd love a pair of these Ocellated turkeys! They truly are beautiful! And yes if you didn't know what one was you could be fooled into thinking it was a turkey / peafowl hybrid!
