    WOW Wow Wow! So cool- is that even possible? I keep wondering if theres a chance the wild Turkey on my property would X with my Peafowl. (We joke that we'll call them Purkey... or Peakeys....
    Has this ever happened? Are there other Peafowl avian crosses? So interesting.

    There is a site in either Central or South America that has a lot of strange crossings that I ran across a few months ago. I think they did AI to get the job done. If I had more time today I would look for the site, perhaps tomorrow...

    Oh my that is so beautiful. To make it to 8 or 9 years old is amazing. Perfect name.

    Yep I have seen that thread before. Pretty strange. I want a peafowl x Ostrich cross so that I can have a big pretty bird to ride around on.[​IMG]

    What always amazed me about that cross is how the feathers all look to be the color of a chicken's feathers and even the face looks more chicken but the feather shape looks more peafowl and the size is of course peafowl. I wonder what kind of noises it makes?
