I know this is a "turkey thread", but it would be a lot cheaper and easier to get some peafowl. I was watering my peas yesterday when all 3 cocks were fully spread out and shaking their feathers to impress the ladies. The ladies looked rather bored by it all, I guess they are used to the high level of beauty being flaunted on their behalf.
I bet I could get you some peafowl eggs to hatch this year, but keeping them is truly a "labor of love", you can't make money, or even break even, with peas. That's hard to do with turkeys, but at least you have a chance to make your feed money back.
