    Thanks for the info. I'm not looking to breed them true or anything. I just love peacocks. Had a pair about twenty years ago but they apparently thought the wild turkey in the area were a nicer flock of peeps to be around, so they flew the coop. [​IMG] I was looking at another page with your pix on it. I was wondering what you use for your net roof and how well it holds up in winter? I plan to build a special run just for the peafowl I'll get this next time. [​IMG]

    Quote:Depend where you are from, alot of breeders use toprite netting. But I use weld wire 2x2, because of the ice build up. Going to try the netting on my next breeder pens. I dont keep them in the breeder pens during the winter.

    The runs should be at least 6 ft tall.
