    While I was at a local auction I saw this hen and decided to try my hand with peafowl since ive been dying for a pair. First I would like to confirm that she is a hen. And can anyone tell me what color this hen is? I have no idea about her background. Thanks!

    Yes, it's a hen! You know you are also gonna need a male to have a pair. [​IMG] Look for atleast a 1 year old cock if you want them to breed next year. They don't start breeding until they are 2.

    Lol yeah I have a male I'll post a pic of him. And sorry about the pic quality it's a crappy cell phone pic.
    Thanks for the help. I just couldn't find any other peahen that looks like her. She is a pretty creamy color.

    The male is a Java or a high percentage spalding that right there is a great score! The hen looks kinda like a Pied Opal but I am just guessing on the hen...

    Yeah I thought it was a java but I wasn't 100% but he was $40 so I couldn't say no.
