    My pea babies are getting too big to keep them all, so I am looking to rehome some.
    Does anyone know how much should ask for a bronze female 4-5 months a cameo and a pair of ?? peaches (about 3 -4 months)?
    Keeping in mind that I do not plan on shipping if I can help it, and good home if far more important than $$$. I don't want to make them so cheap that they are just bought for resale. which I suspect happened to the last ones I sold.

    They are all super friendly.
    For fun here is a pic of my daughter and our IB Peaky. Not sure what game they are playing.

    Quote:I have a bronze chick and a cameo chick.

    Also:
    2 chicks that came from eggs from a mixed pen that had purple and cameo in it but no peach (- I asked the seller). These 2 looked like the peach chicks you posted on the forum in the summer. I do not know if they really are peach and I am definitely no expert on peafowl breeding.
    They may turn out to be some sort of black shouldered pea, but I thought I saw barring on one of them indicating a male which may rule out a black shouldered??? At this point I am totally lost. I need to take some pics and post them so that people who know what they are talking about can figure it out [​IMG] .

    bronze hens at that age $50-$60 or so, cameos $40 -$50 would be the least I'd take for any of them, like Deerman said, peaches would be higher.

    Cameo do look like peach to new people to peafowl. They are different, not that your cant be peach, as the peach can from purples and cameos.

    If blackshoulders they would have hatched out yellow, with cream color flight feathers.

    Price depend on your area also, yearlings 50.00 and up. Peach 100.00 and up. Bronze hens worth more than the cameo.
