Peafowl

One of the most ornamental types of poultry in the world is the peafowl. Originating thousands of years ago in tropical regions, these birds have been prized by everyone from the pharaohs of Egypt, to you, the poultry hobbyist. Peafowl are shipped by Priority Mail and insured: The box should be opened at the post office upon arrival. We must have a minimum order of 8. Limited Supply. Available June, July and August.  Before ordering peafowl, please check with the Regulatory Agency in your state that controls wildlife management.  You may need a permit.

Brooding Peachicks

The temperature at floor level in the brooder needs to be 95-97 degrees for the first two weeks, gradually reducing the temperature by raising the heat lamp.  They will remain in the brooder for up to 8 weeks.

Use a good thick layer of pine shavings for bedding. You will want to clean their area often. It is best to keep them off of dirt for the first year, for disease control.

You will feed a Gamebird or Turkey Starter Feed.  The first day you can sprinkle a very finely chopped hard boiled egg over their feed to get them started.  Our Quik Chik vitamin and electrolyte water supplement is also recommended.

Peafowl are no longer available for our Canadian customers.
