    *India Blues
    *White
    *Bronze
    *Midnight
    *Purple
    *and Silver pied

    Which pair should I get? All of them are $100/pair, except the India Blues are $60/pair. I dont mind spending extra if I can get something good. What is your opions/experiences with these breeds? Thanks

    You know I did the same thing u are doing..it's tuff eh?

    What out of this group do you just look at and go..

    Oh my geisha I love that?

    There ya go

    Now u could be like me, like em all, but I still kept going back too.. But I love color...love color

    So I decided I wanted ib first but got a ib, white eyed..so it had white in the eyes
    Then I didn't get a regular ib girl, because I don't for me personally like the look..since I do like blotchy browns and white, I thought mmmn, why not then get a girl that is not just ib but....ib pied, white eyed..

    Now if those two breed it sounds like most would still be ib

    But then I wanted white..to add to the group..then I had to see a spaulding pied male..and that did it..whooehy
    So my female ..this is where my white comes in..got a female white

    Now when they all breed I could end up with more pied.more India blues, and dark india blue and whites... So I really like the group I am getting next week

    Bronze doesn't do it for me..granted..I haven't seen one in person... lmao..neither did pied ..and it didn't take me but three weeks and I sooo soooo sooo see the beauty in them..had to have one,

    I figure..in about 3 weeks..lmao I will so want a bronze..once I get past the well I have colorful peafowl and a white..now gimme some bronze..iam afraid to see one in person..hehehee

    But I better move..heheeheh

    Good luck..go for what you look at and say..that's so me...

    I will tell you honestly. I have been breeding peafowl for almost 10 years. I have had on average 50-60 peafowl at any given time.

    My husband has never had interest in the peacocks... but when my Bronze male became an adult. Hubby LOVED him.​
