    Hi everyone. This is my first post on BYC and its great to join. I am not new to keeping birds as i have had ducks for years but i recently just got into peafowl. I incubated over a month ago 3 eggs that a friend gave me and they have all hatched fine. I am however confused to what type of peachicks they are as their colors are rather mixed. Could anyone please give me some help on what they are? I was told that their parents where Indian blues but from the research i have found so far they do not look like Indian blue chicks...

    Thanks in advance for replies!

    Welcome and congrats on your hatch! This is my first year also with peafowl...I love them!!! I raise chickens and have raised ducks in the past. You will love this place for advice. It's great talking to the people and meeting their peas too :)

    wow they look lovely! Yes i do love my peachicks. I let them out of the brooder for 10 minutes and they run wild. They love following me as well. They are also picky eaters when it comes to their food.
