    Someone already seen the Australian Charcoal peacock?
    They have the same fertility problems than others?

    Australian charcoal looked more like a bronze in the pictures I first saw. I don't think they are the same, do likely don't have the fertility issues. The place that developed them also advertises that they have an Australian bronze. Only time will tell. They are extremely protective of their program down there, even though they can't export any peafowl. They also seem to have a strong aversion to Americans in general. This goes both ways I think though, too bad. If there wasn't so much adversity, I wonder if a sperm exchange would be possible? Lots of red tape I'm sure.
