Last year i kind of inherited 2 peacocks and a hen from my late Aunt. Right after i got them i seen a add on craigslist that some one needed a male. I called them and ended up trading 1 of the males for a young hen. The mature hen ended up being old and no longer lays so i had no eggs or chicks this year. My male passed away this winter he stuck his neck in some where it did not belong. That left me with a old as dirt hen and a young hen that should lay this summer. So yesterday i seen a add for peafowl for sale. I called them and it was the man that got the peacock from me. He was really proud of his new male and told me he fathered 17 chicks this year and i could have as many as i wanted. I told him i would really like a trio and he told me to come pick them up. when i went to pick them up he told me he had been trying to find my number to give me some more birds. He and his wife were really pushing to take more than the 3 i wanted, I told him i felt the 3 was enough and if i had any more i would just sell them. so long story short i am back into the peafowl business. Now i know i will not have a mature male this summer, but next year i should be going strong.
