    I think they take allot of care, they look pretty but they have a wild look to me...

    Hehe, they are pretty, I'm having a hard time remembering why you shouldn't get one........ I'd love a Palawan Peacock-Pheasant. Looking at the price though I don't think I see one in my future [​IMG].

    We have 7/8th Spaulding and they have done just fine here in Eastern, NC for coming up on 4 years now. No heat in the winter and they roost outside under a roof. They have access to a house but don't use it. From what people have told me even a higher % Spaulding than 7/8 can handle cold.

    They are more flighty than other pea's. We raised ours from chicks and they are still flighty. We have some eggs in the 'bator now from ours, it will be interesting to see how flighty they are. Ours have never shown any agression to us or other birds

    Thank u Steve, I really appreciate your input
