    Seriously though, I'm not familiar with peas, but have you been outside today? I wouldn't want to raise peachicks in this and they probably don't want to either. Be patient. [​IMG]

    My experience is somewhat limited, but last year I did not get any here in Georgia until late April.

    Anytime in the summer...Really you never know. Sometimes the breed early, sometimes in the middle, sometimes late...But if you see your male displaying and then running at your peahen while displaying then it might be getting closer to that time you should be expecting eggs. You have to be patient though, last year was my first breeding season with peafowl and one day I just walked into the pen and there was an egg. I knew I would get eggs because I saw them mate but still it was a surprize![​IMG]
