    Hello everyone I just finished a new site page that has 5 different peacock sound clips taken from videos I have.

    If you could please visit the page and let me know if you are able to listen to the sound clips. You don't have to listen to all of them just one.

    If the sound clips don't work for you let me know what browser you are using and what windows you are on, etc. I am using windows 7 with internet explorer and it is working for me. I think this is a fairly new sound code that I am using, so it should work for most people hopefully.

    Thank you! [​IMG]

    I hope to be adding more sounds in the future!

    Minxfox thank you for that. All the sounds came in clear. They were so good to hear as with our cold it will be awhile before I hear those calls. Hearing Alto calling lets me know that Spring is really coming.

    Great thanks for the feedback! There are two sound files for each one sound so that if one browser does not support mp3 then it will use the ogg file. Well I think I didn't save my ogg files the right way because they play using the old sound clip and not the trimmed one. I found this out by playing the sound files on my phone.

    If anyone else has this problem let me know. I will go in and fix the ogg files sometime probably tonight if I don't forget.

    So if you hear more than just the peacock call, such as rustling noises or me talking, etc then that is not what it should sound like. I specifically trimmed the sound files down so all you hear is the peacock call - but it seems the ogg files didn't take on that change.

    This morning my parrots were eavesdropping on me. We were still in the bedroom where I was playing the sound tracks on my phone and the parrots in the livingroom started to imitate the pea calls. DWs parrot has been making a terrible shrieking noise lately in the early morning, my parrot will tell it "Stop that!". Of course, it doesn't make any difference and the other will still make the annoying noise. When the parrots started imitating the peas call, DW was not amused. [​IMG]

    Uh oh looks like next time you might have to wear headphones. I couldn't find my headphones when I was making the sound clips, so my parents had to keep hearing peacock calls over and over again haha. The dog kept looking at me curiously every time she heard the noise.

    All ogg files are fixed now. My phone was using the ogg files so I just tested the sound on my phone and it works great! So the sound should work well on your phone and your computer.

    I plan on playing the clips the next time I am with my peafowl and see if it will make any of the males start calling. I wanted to add a sound file of Frosty making the mating call that they make when they chase a peahen, but the video was taken on my phone and it was too large to send to my computer by email. I guess I could plug my phone into my computer to get the video. Anyways that will give me something to do since I am sick right now. [​IMG]

    Hello! Very new to peas. My daughter and I have been trying to figure out if this Pea is male or female.. I thought at first female because no train? and not much color on neck area. It started coming here 2 months ago and hanging out with my free range chickens (I have 4 hens and a roo) that whole time all we heard was honking until day before yesterday when I heard it honk then a short reg peacock call ??? I ran outside to see if a male had showed up as well. Now last evening I hear a reg male type peacock call???
    Hoping you guys can clear up for me what the sex of this bird is. Thanks[​IMG]

    Well she is a hen for sure. They can make several different vocalizations, although I have never heard a hen make the regular male "Heeeeellllllp" sounding call. I do wonder though, if in the absence of a male, would a hen start making male calls? I wonder because my one little Serama hen started to crow loudly several months after the rooster with them was killed by a hawk. She did this until there was another rooster on the premises.
