    Trying to find out if anyone here in Michigan raises Cameos as I am seeking out a male cameo if possible. I do know of Alex Ancona raising Cameo pied white eyes as he got birds from mutual friend but trying to find a regular cameo or black shoulder cameo. Thanks for any help.

    I have also been looking for different color mutations here in Michigan I have come across a few cameos for sale but can't remember any names. The best advice I have is go to the mbgba website and call around maybe try Author and Gloria Gunnels and see if they have any input I know they raise black shoulder, white, India blue, and bronze but last I met with them no cameo. Also try the spicer family I'm pretty sure they have raised and think they still raise cameos their number is on that site too.

    I also believe Alex Ancona in Lapeer raises them.

    Quote:Thank you Kathy! I do raise a lot of Cameos but i don't live in Michigan. I ship a lot of birds to Michigan of all colors. The only Cameo I have left from last years hatch is a Cameo Pied WE cock.

    I've got a few in the incubator, I ordered the cameo eggs online. I live near Lapeer.

    We've gotten all of our peacocks from the Spicer's in Cedar Springs. https://www.facebook.com/SpicerOrnamentalBirdFarm/

    I know they are getting ready to take the remainder of 2016 birds to a big bird auction in OH. They are one of the largest peacock breeders in midwest, they were featured on one of Dr Pol's show. Very helpful couple.

    You can also check the bird shows. http://www.mbgba.com/upcoming_events

    Good luck!

    Thanks. Yeah I know Spicers. They dont raise Cameos. I may make a trip to Ohio. I know Hopkins down there raises some. I just need a male to go with my female cameos. I will end up putting them with one of my other males this year I guess but been wanting a male cameo for a bit now. Thanks

    It's a fun time, worth going at least once. Hope you have nice weather.
