    I am looking for a peafowl pair, I’d like for them to be friendly. I don’t care about colors or anything like that. I just want to expand my farm :)

    I’m located very close to Charlotte, NC area. Thank you!

    Good luck... I held my four peafowls everyday... one even got hurt and slept with me for weeks... still not friendly hahaha
    What I have heard is you don’t want your males to be friendly because they attack. But I could be wrong

  3. Yes, making a cock imprint on you can be dangerous. I am taking my chances with this one. But he is just unusual enough to take a chance.

  5. And he just keeps getting better. I am excited to see the green iridescent feathers coming in and hoping to see a few nice scales on the front of the neck in time.

    Kedreeva could offer some tips on making them user friendly too. She & KKBee both do a nice job with their birds!

  9. They are out of 75% Spaulding Black Shoulder cock that shows no white on him. The grandmother was a Low % BS hen carrying a white gene of some type. They produced four white hens three of which had some spots. The daughter was bred back to the father and produced the male chick above. This year all three hens will be put back with the father and the following year this cock chick will be over all three of the spotted sisters, one of which is his mother. This is also the same pen that produces my Red Buffs.
