PostForum: Breeding and Genetics   Posted: Mon Nov 07, 2016 9:00 am   Subject: What do I call them?
Okay, I'm kind of confused with the whole genetics thing with peafowl -- typically I always am. Smile So, when breeding bronze, are the birds EVER split to bronze? I have two pied chicks that came out o ...

Okay, I'm quite confident the white peachicks are going to remain white. Father is definitely a bronze male . . . mom, like I said, could be from an India blue hen, pied hen, or one of two bronze hens ...

Well, unfortunately, I now only have one chick with the splayed beak issue. I had just put the chicks in one of the outside pens on Friday night, and when I came back out to check on them Saturday mor ...

Okay, I finally got a picture of what's going on with the two chicks. I can't seem to load directly to this forum, so here's the link:

I think I have a better way to describe what's going on with the beak. It looks quite a bit like when you take two Pringle potato chips and hold the ends in your mouth so you look like a "duck.&q ...

I have a bronze male (who appears to have some blackshoulder in him and I think has a white flight feather) was bred with bronze females, a blue female, and an India blue pied female.

Now, in addi ...

I 've had my best year ever hatching out bronze and split-to-bronze chicks as this year I made sure to keep all the eggs under a cochin or silkie hen for at least a week to 10 days before moving to an ...

Thanks for the responses. I have decided to try to thin out the number of birds in the pen. Not sure if it's going to work or not, but we'll see. I do have to say that so far this has only been a &quo ...

I have a couple yearling peacocks (no peahens) and one adult whose feathers seem like they are being shredded... something possibly eating them (mice?) or maybe there's a deficiency in their diet (but ...

Could be. Just seems odd that a piece of corn at the back of the throat would cause a cyst in the eye socket rather than, well, the back of the throat/neck area. Of course, it still could be just that ...

Not to argue with a vet, but I'm not sure it's the fault of the whole corn -- I feed all my peacocks a mix of whole corn, layer and dry cat food (along with a mix of other items in small quantity). I' ...

Just wanted to add something. I learned recently that when giving medication to older peafowl, you are to insert the syringe from left to right down its throat to avoid flooding your bird's lungs with ...

Oops...I originally posted the wrong name!!
