    Try the United Peafowl Association website breeder directory.

    craigslist too.
    Also if you have a Georgia Ag. online site w/ classifieds .
    See breeders selling eggs on ebay from Georgia at times, you may can get in touch with someone there.

    Don't see any peafowl at the below site but keep checking !

    Have you checked the for sale area here on BYC? That is where my ad is for selling Peafowl. [​IMG]

    Try this group, search for this name and hopefully will find it, ask about people with peafowls in your area and you may find some.(Peafowl, Pheasants, Guinea Fowls & Quails Buy,Sell & General Chat.)

    Some parts of the country have "poultry swaps" and/or "bird auctions" so it is worth searching for those terms on the internet with your state, city or nearby state names. Also, check the bulletin board at your local feed store (even Tractor Supply usually has one by the restrooms), and ask store clerks what they know. (You wouldn't think the clerks at Tractor Supply would know, but they often hire farm/ranch kids out here, and those kids know a lot!)

    You know it isn't really breeding season yet, right? More folks will turn up as spring progresses into summer. Also, some folks will not sell peachicks below a certain age due to high chick losses from sub-optimal husbandry and peachick susceptibility to coccidia, etc.
