    An elderly friend of mine came home last weekend to about 10 or so chicks from her peafowl. Can you give me a fair price for her to sell them for? She is overun as it is and sure doesn't want to keep them.

    I realize that, but if she should sell them for $25 I don't want to recommend $5.00.

    Depends on colors, 20.00 and up.

    Normal blue 20.00 each.

    Some like the greens would be in the hundreds.

    Thank you, she has several colors including really pretty white ones. I'll suggest the $20 to her.

    I would love to have some, they are sooo beautiful. I'm plotting to order some eggs & be really really surprised when it turns out to be a peafowl. I'll just shrug and say the shipper must have mixed up my order with someone else's.
    I'm doing my best to turn this place into a farm...but DH says no goats, no peafowl, no pigs, no guineas (sp?)...and I've tricked him into saying yes to a duck.
    I told him I wanted a Muscovy, & it thrives off bugs. He assumed it was a breed of chicken, so he said yes.

    If she has peach, bronze, midnights, silver pieds. Those are worth alot more, like peach I think are still selling for 200.00 per pair(3 month old peachicks) peach males more than peach females.

    More common colors are blues,whites,blackshoulders(blue)
    White sell good, but just a little more than normal blues.
