    I am looking into getting some more peacocks. The guy told me that they are pied but they are clearly not. The peahen looks like a india blue not sure about the male though.
    Oh also is 75 a good price for a pair?

    The hen is india blue and the male is a blackshoulder. 75.00 is a very good price the hen is worth more that that.

    No, he did not say why. Alls he said was that last year was his first with a full plumage. And he told me the hens lays eggs and setts well. I hope so!!! 75 is good, I wasnt sure I thought it was. Peacocks aren't expensive around here. A couple of years ago I got 8 peacocks for FREE. Then I had to get rid of them because I couldn't handle them at the time. Now I have 4 other peacocks that are 3 India Blue and 1 Black Shoulder hen, so I am excited to get this pair. That way I can have a breeding pair of Black Shoulders then a breeding pair of India Blues. Ill sell the other 2 females.

    My pen isn;t that big for that many peacocks. I have a 8x8 coop that they live in with a 10x12 run. I might expand the run to a 20x30 It is an old horse stall that we dont use. But I dobt I can get that much wire to rap all the way around that. Peafowl around here go for......... Blues $60/pair, and white, bronze, midnight, purple are all $100/pair. Silver pied males $50. The guy I know sells them for this much. Might be getting some colors if I can expand LOL....

    Wow if only prices were like that here! So when you say $60 and $50, ect you mean for adults, because that is way great around here that is more like yearling prices and adults are more like $100.

    Oh and P.S. I want 8 free peacocks![​IMG]

    That price is for yearlings, but you get a pair for 60.00 so we have a fairly close price range...
