    Your Java peahen is very pretty where did you get her from? We all like seeing photos from new people too so you should post your photos in the Show Off Your Peas topic! [​IMG]

    Awww thanks im trying to find how to make a photo gallery because I do have plenty of pictures. O and to answer your question she was a hard find but after but after 6 months of searching and a lot of driving and a lil bribing I found somebody that had true Java green and he was only thinking about selling ,so after a lot of talking him into it I got her I'm not sure how many are in America that are not Spaldings but she's a true and not a Spalding. Alot taller then my blk sholder femal so no inbreeding there.

    I thought she was a spalding with the way her crest is like it is, do you have more photos to share of her.

    Leo7 has great photos of pure green peafowl on here. Those hens have phenomenal crests. Pfauenfreund has this picture on his website(http://www.peafowl-farm.com/Home-English/home-english.html):

    I know my Java well start to peel at the feet and act really disoriented if its below 40 real bad in fact I had to keep her in the house befor the coop was adequately fixed for her. The fact that you can keep her an in snow , shows that you have a really good hardy Spalding..
