We have been thinking of getting a pair or trio of peafowl for a while now. I am hoping to visit one or two local farms to get an idea of the best way to house the birds. We have about 100 chickens, 12 ducks, 10 geese, 5guineas and three baby turkeys. Our birds freerange and sleep together in a large room that was built on the side of a 40x60 barn. I am not sure which type of peafowl we want to get, I do like the blues, pieds and whites. I'm hoping buy chicks and raise them. We haven't been too successful with hatching and do not want to lose the birds because of a failed hatching. Is there a type that is more gentle than the others, etc.? We like to interact with our birds and have an 8 year old son, so we want to try to get birds that are not agressive to him. So, I guess what I'm asking for is, what type would be best for our situation? Recommendations for breeders or birds avaiable close to Ellis County, Texas. Thanks.
