I know I should know the answer to this...But...I don't! The peafowl stickies said this: Quote: After reading that, I was wondering how warm is very warm? Also, I read this on Hopkin's page: Quote: It doesn't get well bellow freezing here, but it certainly does not stay 30 to 40 deg. F in the winter... I thought I didn't have to worry about the green peafowl's winter requirements because I am in Florida. Well...I got to thinking about how last winter seemed a little harsh with a small ice storm. Usually for our winters it gets around 20-10 deg F, but for a few days in a row it can sometimes be as cold as 5 deg F. We don't have a dry cold here it is a wet cold so to me, it makes it feel even colder than it is. I have been rushing to finish at least one pen, and so far one has almost all of the fencing up. I need to order netting and get a shelter, but the shelter part is what I am unsure of. I don't have electricity out to the pens, although I don't think I need electricity right? I don't get snow here and I don't think it is so harsh that they would need heating or a heat lamp. I was thinking I could build a tin shelter with nice high roosts and the back wall would be fully enclosed with the side walks half enclosed and the rest of the wall would be fencing along with some tightly spaced bamboo fencing I have been wanting to use on a pen. Does that sound good? I know the main issue is that the birds need to keep their toes warm. I figure if the shelter blocks the wind that will cut down a lot of the harshness of the winter. I know for me, winter is okay but it is the wind that really gets me. I can definitely sympathize with tropical birds. I was thinking something a bit similar to the tin shelter I currently have in the other aviary: I hope someone can help! I think I will be okay with the above type shelter but I just want to be sure. I would hate to finally get green peafowl only for them to get frost bite! Rocking BAB's greens all seemed to have shelters just like this and I didn't see any form of heated roosts or enclosed areas that they are placed in for the winter. I really hope I won't need any kind of heat because that would be a huge setback!
