    I have two Burmese Green Peacocks that I purchased from Medicine Tree Farm in Ithaca, NY.
    They are going to be turning two years old this spring.
    I was wondering if they look "pure" to the peafowl experts on here.
    Here are some pictures of them:

    I realize they probably are not 100% pure, but I just want some feedback on them.
    Thanks in advance,
    Blue Creek Farm

    Beautiful!
    And I know absolutely nothing other than photos and what I have read recently but they look pure to me. However, I want to stress I know nothing of this variety of peafowl with experience.

    Thanks!
    I am no expert either, so I am hoping that someone like Resolution will soon join this thread.

    I do not remeber them having barring, mabe they are spaldings.
    They are very beautiful no matter what they are.
    I wished i could have them roaming free here but i have read that they are very flighty and may very well take off.

    Zaz, they aren't mature yet, so they have not fully coloured out yet

    Thank you for your replies zazouse and Arbor.
    As Arbor had said, the Javas aren't mature yet and they do take longer to color out.
    I have seen their parents and they are beautiful without any barring.
    They were hand raised, but on occasion they are flighty...and I would not them to fly away!

    I would guess they knew what they sold you however i do not see any pairs of green peafowl on their website just what they list as a Muticus Spicifer cock.
    Why don't you call and ask them if there is any other blood that may be in the breeding that should clear it up if they own the parents and know the background on the pair.

    Good point Zaz, and the easiest to clear anything up. I do know they mostly deal with Spaldings though.

    They do have the breeder pair of Burmese, and I have seen them in person.
    But I will contact him and ask more about them.
