    I asked the same question on the other threads and wanted to hear who's you peafowl/chicken owners favorites? "intelligence"/"stupidity", personality and your attachments, just everything in general? Your chickens VS. peas.
    Thanks,

    peas would be the last to go ... beyond their beauty, they almost have a way of almost looking into your soul --- i'm sure most who've had them understand what i mean by that ... with me the peas are definitely an obsession while the chickens are more of an infatuation (an out of hand one at that)...

    Are peas really wild like? Kinda like guineas who never really tamed down for me.

    My thinking is along the lines of "If it's not tame, might as well just feed the wild birds and turkeys and quail and pheasants and everything else". I NEED tame.

    If you handle them when young, they ear not tame. I handled my white peacock and he is as tame as they come. I took him on rides with me to the store. Took him in the stores. I let other people handle him and he is VERY tame now.

    Here are pics when he was young. He is about 7 months old now.
    Knocked out in the front seat.
