The breeding season 2015 for our green peafowl is nearly finished. The males are starting to drop off the trains and the last Chicks will eclose within the next two weeks.
People who are interested in offspring and/or to participate the WPA stud-book program can now make reservations for offspring. We are starting to handover them starting from an age of approx. 5 month.
International export is possible, all birds are registered and all needed documents can be issued.

Thank you George,
this is exactly what I'm doing, raise Peafowl just for the beauty of them.
I will come back with some more Pictures in a few weeks. I have made some Videos too, which I will show soon.
Many regards

In addition to the pictures I made a video to show how much fun it is to walk around with the green peafowl chicks.

Today I could mark the first offspring 2015 with closed numbered leg bends. Each bird will get two closed rings, one numbered breeder ring with the year on and the yellow numbered stud-book ring.
The food link of the two hens are now big enough that they rings will not drop off anymore and still small enough that a could push them on.

Every day I make a free walk with my green peafowl chicks around. In the video which I made end of June, beginning of July you will see some impressions about it.
People who are interested in offspring and/or to participate the WPA stud-book program can now make reservations for offspring. As you can see on the video they are tame and all in perfect conditions. We are starting to handover them starting from an age of approx. 4 month.
International export is possible, all birds are registered and all needed documents can be issued.

The summer is over and we are going with big steps into the autumn. All peafowls are moulting and getting back again step for step the colour and the brightness. The chicks are already grown to respectable sizes.

Here are some pictures of a gorgeous nice young hen, who will go two weeks on the way to her new home. The hen is just 5 month old and already beautiful coloured and bright. A dream for every enthusiast.

This hen is the first offspring I had 2.5 years ago from the imported green peafowl. On the wing covers she moulted already all feathers and appears now in her full brightness.
The pictures of the wing covers are made from different angles to show what an extraordinary brightness this hen has. The first four pictures are made in the sun, on the last four pictures she is in the shadow, but this is not reducing her brightness. With this emerald green colour she could be a Java hen.

And now a short video of the hen on which the smaragd green brightness can be seen a little bit better. It is always very difficult to show this with pictures and videos. It work only partly to show what the eyes are seeing, but I thing on this video it can be seen very well.

Here an additional video with our green peafowl offspring 2015 during their daily free run. This is the older group of birds. The video was made beginning of July.

The first animals from this group are now already at their new owner, who is very pleased about the lively but trustworthy animals.

The Indian summer brings the colour of the bird back and the first chicks from this year are now grown to beautiful young birds.
