Hello all. Last September, my mother and I bought a lovely pair of peafowl. And they're doing very well so far! Icey and Ming are very pretty, Ming is pied and Icey is a white. Now, to be honest, we don't know much about them. We've never had peas before. I've been doing some research, but I still have a few questions. First of all, I read that if a bird has both green AND blue that means they're a hybrid? This is Ming: What does he look like to you? I have more pictures if necessary. Also, when Icey begins to lay - how many eggs can I expect to get from her in a season, if I continually remove them and incubate them myself? I have a Brinsea Octagon 20 and Brinsea Mini. How big are the eggs? Will they fit in the 20? I expect they're too big to fit in the Mini, but I've never seen one so... Should I give the hen a place to lay? Do they want boxes, or would they rather have some kind of lean-to or small covered area (like guineas would prefer)? One more thing - I read over the Genetics 101 thread, but I didn't completely understand everything. If I have a pied and a white (I don't know anything about her genetic background or parents) what kind of offspring will they produce? I think I read they will produce 100% pieds, does this ever vary or do I have it wrong? What kind of feed should I be feeding during the breeding season? I currently keep all of my birds on either 18% all purpose pellets or 22% non-medicated gamebird starter (depending on what my dealer has available; his selection varies). Thanks to anyone who answers. Regards, -QueenMisha.
