    These birds are not for beginners.They are very different to raise then common pheasants.They require a totally different diet,and need shelter from the cold.

    I have some available to me, they are $750 a pair (right in line with Tony K T's quote) and he is also correct in the care and maintenance. They are nothing like chickens, typical pheasants, or chukars, coming from tropical rainforests on Palawan island in the Philippines and depending on the species places in mainland Southeast Asia. They can't take cold or dry air very well, and their diet is not the same as most pheasants, they eat a lot of fruit and leaves along with nuts so not only should they receive the regular pelleted pheasant foods but lots fresh fruit and nuts plus lots and lots of insects, especially if you want them to breed.

    Grey peacock pheasants are endangered but still available through breeders. After you research how to keep them and you can provide the conditions to keep them healthy look around or contact me and I can get you in touch with people who have birds for sale.

    Very few if any people will sell eggs from palawans as they can get good money for juvenile to adult birds.This helps get the money back from what they have invested in their breeder birds.When you buy a pair of any bird,you always seem to lose one of them before breeding season and they have to purchase another to replace.So a 600.00 pair of birds is not the full investment into the pair of breeds.I could cost 1800.00 or even more for that 600.00 pair of birds.

    Hi, I have a small farm and just recently got into raising ornamental game birds. What a rewarding hobby but lots of work and care go into raising these birds. Recently, I just added two pairs of Impeyans to my collection. These guys are awesome!! The males talk and scratch at the dirt when they see me coming and the females kind of get jealous...until I hand her a fresh watermelon rind. Then she looks at me with that side way glance and pecks away....

    I also have a female temminck that I am looking for eggs to hatch her a boyfriend. I would be willing to trade some of my impeyan eggs for some temminck and palawan eggs.

    If I can get my hands on the palawan, I would love to add to my collection. Anyone know where I could get some eggs??? We have built a spectacular bird sanctuary here and I am now experienced enough to get a pair of palawan...I think any way...
