    I am checking for wing bands today. I don't know but a good friend has been suggesting that what I believe have is not what they are.craigslist kicked me off of out of state sites. I know someone would want some, does anyone have suggestions? I even listed them on here. I can't figure this darn selling out! [​IMG]

    Try newspaper classifieds for specific areas you want to target or http://classifieds.com. Otherwise you should look into maybe doing your own site. :/ I have never sold out of state though, those are just what came to mind for me.

    If you belong to the UPA, you can post a classified on their site.

    PD I thought you will import Burmese peafowl from Thailand, why you are interested in inbreeded domestic birds?

    If they are pure they are all going back to an import from Germany and all these birds are having a very high inbreeding factor.

    Good question. I posted this question a couple of weeks ago, IIRC. Because I don't have the experience with peafowl that I have with other things, I thought it would be prudent to compare the pricing of the US birds, vs. imported birds. When I found out what the domestic birds would cost, I than went to my Thai contacts and asked them what the price point was for the birds coming out of Thailand. Then we needed to cross the USDA bridge, and get that sorted out.

    As it stands now, the import of Thai birds is going to be slightly more expensive, but not as much as I had anticipated. We're going that route. It is going to take some time to get it completed, but we're confident that we will have purebred Thai birds here before summer.

    I apologize for not responding sooner, I have been in Ohio for the last week. They are not pure, i was lied to again, 00000 wing bands! check your things and let me know what you have to pay for pure, please. Sorry but these birds aren't for sale any longer, I can only guarantee a high percentage green out of them.
