    Hi Sara & redoak, He is nice but he is in molt,,he should look 100% better after his molt, she is also molting as well..got there linage and both come from two different breeders and are not directly linked, the breeder i got them from has dicided to only work with peacock pheasants and that is why he sold them, The Edwards are around 5 years old. Gues they only lay about 25-27 eggs a year.

    Got them to just have somthing a bit different than what we are used to having here, something a bit more exotic..they are really pretty...my Pictures dont do them justic..

    Thanks
