    Yes I still have a few, young and older ones, do ship , but the shipping cost is not cheap 65 to 110 depends on size.

    try some of these breeders in your state.

    Deerman, do you have any peach or split peach males left. I have two peach pied hens but my male died unexpectedly thus winter.

    I have gotten pea's from Leggs peafowl and Bow's peafowl. I recommend them both.

    Depending on where you are I would say 65 to 75 dollars plus the box for 1 adult male. Most breeder charge 25.00 for the box I sending 2 hens up north and it 91.60 for the postage plus the box. You can go to the USPS site and calulate the price http://www.usps.com/prices/express-mail-prices.htm

    Peafowl depending on age the price varies: India Blue being the less $ and Pure Java Muticus-Muticus being the most $$$$.

    Blues up to a year old $25.00 to $45.00 each depending on what state your in, Yearlings will be higher.

    Most breeders will not sell Pure Javas until they are older (yearlings) so they can be sexed (you can have them DA sexed for extra $$)
    they will start at about $250.00 to $1500.00 each depending on who has them, the imports being the most $$$$.

    Then add box and shipping to the cost of the bird.

    I hope between Doug and myself this helps answer your question.
