    I'm thinking about getting some Peafowl for exhibition and for pets and I'm wondering how many males per female. I won't be getting too many of these, probably somewhere around 5.

    When I say exhibition I mean just for my yard, not for county fairs.

    I'd like to know the same thing. I've only had my peafowl for a few months now and I have three, all males but I want to get a peahen next year. I wonder if just one will be fine as I dont want to end up with 6 peafowl plus the nine guinea hens I got this year as well... I wish I could help you. Hopefully some of the more experienced peafowl owners will come here.
     
  5. I have five hens with single boys in a couple of pens with no problems with fertility.
