    Parents are purple black shouldered white eyed pied. I am not a peafowl expert, but the breeder tells me offspring will not hatch true and could be a variety of colors. If you would like to see pictures of the parent, just take a peek at the webcam (link in my signature below) anytime during daylight eastern time hours to see them live and in person. The male has a beautiful purple head and a white eyed tail. The girls are mostly white pied with a brown - very lovely and gentle too.

    I set the first 6 collected a week ago and I just candled those tonight...all 6 have veining, [​IMG] so I know we have good fertility!

    $20 for whatever is laid this week (should be AT LEAST 4 eggs, maybe more - will refund $5 per egg if less than 4 shipped) plus actual postage.

    First to post 'sold' gets 'em!

    The peacock 'in action':

    The trio - this is not a great picture - it was late and they had JUST settled into the shelter after we brought them home.

    Do you expect to have another great deal like this in another week? If so, I would sure like to get on the list.

    Wow! Didn't think there were that many folks looking for mystery hatch peafowl!

    I've got you down in the order you replied. I think three weeks ahead is far enough as far as making a list - I'm not sure how much longer they will be laying...don't want to count my eggs before they are laid! [​IMG] If the keep laying longer then I'll repost in a few weeks.

    I'll get in touch with you each around Mon/Tues of the week your eggs would ship to make arrangements. Same price works for me - $20 for whatever is laid that week, with min of 4 eggs, plus actual shipping.

    Hi!

    I'd love to get put on the list, at least if you're willing to accept another person.

    Thanks!

    Wiggi - I'll keep you on the list, but can't guarantee there will be eggs that long. I'm hoping they hold out for another 4 weeks as it is...but hopefully they will come through for ya!

    Just a note to myself to put tat2lady on the list too...
