    As always, beautiful photos everyone! Love seeing all your beauties.

    My Opal split boy, Hallelujah (also my avatar when he was a baby)..... as you may have seen me post before, he is out of a Bronze peacock and a Opal WE hen.

    Here is my Cameo. I have a Bronze hen in with him this year. I have a few eggs set already. Fingers crossed they hatch and do well.

    My Bronze peacock has a Bronze WE hen with him this year as well as a silver pied hen. Both hens are laying.

    Mojo, my IB. Not an easy bird to be around. He has always been flighty even though hand raised by my friend. I figure too much inbreeding and next year I will be putting Bronze hens with him and maybe an Opal since they should be a good out cross.

    Super, one of my Purple peacocks.

    Gorgeous babies! What kind of treat do you have in your hand that they go so crazy for? And how early do u put wing bands on? Do they get those during their first week?

    Yes, they get the wing bands in the first week. The crack they go crazy for is a hard boiled egg and ten teaspoons of crumbles put through a food chopper. they get this the first week then tapered down to either hand feeding or as a top dressing on the crumbles. Yes, the go nutty for it. AND if you ever want to medicate their food, this is the perfect food to put it in.
