    We are looking for a mate for a very lonely male Peacock. The male is going to be a show-bird and shown my by six-year-old second cousin, and he is in need of a mate. He is being grouchy without one and trying to get everyone else's women lol (the goose's and the turkey's).

    We would love possibly a Purple, Silver Pied, or a White peahen, but it really doesn't matter.. The younger the better, and reasonable prices, as we are 4-H. If anyone could help out, let me know. Thanks so much. We are located in NY.

    Thanks!

    go to the United Peafowl Assoc. www.peafowl.org
    we have a list of breeders by state. there are several in NY state so I think you should be able to find a girl easily.

    You had to buy all six of them though?? It's cheap, but not if you don't need six hens... Were they chicks or adults?

    that is probably the price for day olds.... unsexed peachicks.
    Once they are old enough to sex the price usually goes up to $50 ish

    But 35 for six, it kinda adds up. The that we have was only 20 something and he was not even a chick, but kind of an adolescent really. Well, I shan't give up. I'll keep looking for maybe one with low minimums thats perhaps closer. [​IMG]
