    I can't get over the white eyes. I never wanted to like them-altering the ocelli seemed sacrilegious. But these are such amazing specimens. I can't get over it.

    [​IMG] Wow, just wow. Amazing birds, fabulous pics everyone!!! I am so totally in awe [​IMG]

    I'm a complete newbie to Peafowl, but already addicted. I started with 2 precious little 2day old IB Peachicks back in May (they are now 6 1/2 months old and are both Hens), and I just recently got them a handsome boyfriend to grow up with (YAY!!!) He's older than they are, but still young. They've already bonded [​IMG]

    I am used to nothing but crazy skitzo Guineas and a silly Wild Turkey that thinks it's a Guinea, so I am completely smitten with the beauty, elegance and tranquility of Peafowl... I want about 100 more!!! (Anybody want about 200 Guineas, CHEAP? [​IMG] I need the coop/pen space!!!)

    Here's some pics of my baby girls from the time I got them 'til they were moved out to their coop/pen:

    And here's some recent pics of the girls and their handsome man... my poor old camera sucks, and I had to use the flash... so unfortunately these pics do not even come close to capturing the true colors [​IMG]

    Sorry if I posted too many pics... bad habit of mine!!! [​IMG]

    I just got another IB Hen this afternoon (I think she's an IB anyway... it's possible she's got a little spalding in her), but she's far from pic-worthy at this point. It's been raining for a couple days and she's been a free ranger for over a year, so needless to say she looks a little rough, but her eyes are bright and she's very alert (and scared to death). I have her in my quarantine pen with some good grub, electrolytes/vitamins and a heat lamp. Hopefully she'll preen herself up and look better in a day or so and I can get some good pics of her [​IMG]


    ETA: A few better pics

    Newest Hen (yah, she looks rough right now, cuz she is [​IMG] Just got her, she's been free range/completely feral for at least a couple yrs I think:
