    I don't know what you are looking for but I still have several from this year's hatch. This is my first year to hatch so I have been having a hard time letting go of them. However, I cannot keep all of them. I have India Blues, IB Pied, a couple of Purple Hens and Whites. I am however in Southwest Missouri.

    dkwynne, thanks for the reply....hmmm...think Missouri might be too far away...
    really wish you were closer as we would like more whites and peaches...

    don't think I have heard of the 'purple' but sure they are pretty.

    will keep you in mind anyway, thanks! critters

    Check with the United Peafowl Association (UPA)
    http://www.peafowl.org/

    under their breeder directory:
    http://www.peafowl.org/breeders.htm

    If the breeders near you do not have contact info on this page you need to contact some one under the UPA contact info link, maybe to get a referral.... That list does have some websites so check those out. I keep a bunch of website bookmarked in my favorites to go back and look through. There may be some one nearby or you may have to drive a ways to something. There are many color varieties, but prices go with those different colors, so you may want to do some research before you commit.

    I am sure there are some out there for sale, but it is kinda a bad time of year, what with the holidays. That said, I started getting mine during the early winter, too.

    Good luck. As always, post those pics when you get some!!! We all love looking at what others have!
