Wow! nothing compares to the beauty of a peacock displaying his train of feathers. Large, hardy birds with long lifespans (up to 30 years). THey lay few eggs and those eggs are tricky to hatch, making them a more expensive bird overall. They also need large enclosures, well protected from predators. Finally, they are very loud during mating season (spring and summer). The cries of the male are screams that travel long distances.
Our flock is a mixture of black shouldered, india blue and pied.
