We've been bombed for 3 weeks already with X-mas commercials. We all here as peafowl keepers don't see many,if any specials regarding much for helping our flocks available at Wal-Mart or any "Blue Lite Specials" Times are tough,feed prices have went up about 30% the last 6 months along with everything else,including building supplies which I know all too well. So within our Pea regulars here,what are 3 things you would put on a list regarding your peas or fellow fanciers for X-Mas or in 2013? Here is my short 3 wish list. 1) To offer Mmmaddie13 and New 2 a special "box suprise" this summer with 2 of Thangs progeny.Since both these byc'ers stick up-defend and love this bird so much,it's only fitting their pea palaces be graced with some of Thangs genetics.Spreading the Thang love around the globe 2) Hatch more than 1 peachick from my Charcoal dark pied w/e (Kingsford) this coming summer.Thru experimenting with a diffrent ration after I brought my quad of BSSP home and witnessing egg after egg quit,then trying a higher protein diet that showed a 60% improvement in hatchrates within 3 days of feeding it may solve my Charcoal quitter problem also. My goal this summer is to hatch no less than 20 peachicks from my Charcoal pen. 3) To add Cameos,Whites,and Purple B/S birds to Pea Palace.At present I have a Purple BSSP coming 3 yr old male from Leggs,with 2 purple b/s hens.2 purple hens,and a purple pied hen.I have 2 coming 2 year old Purple b/s hens that would be too many to add with my other purple birds,so getting a nice Purple b/s 3 year old,and having a straight pen of b/s in the color Purple would be nice.
