Ok, I posted this on the old forum during the address change so will try it here.
I used to have a great book or raising peafowl but cannot locate it anywhere.
I think the name of it was the Wacky World of Peafowl.
Any suggestions on what books you guys like for all around info. per raising these wonderful birds? Everything from pen building to medication info. etc. is what I'm looking for, peafowl husbandry I suppose.

That is about the only book I can find! ebay, amazon, just google it, I haven't got any books yet as I like to check them out bfore I buy them but this site and google have been a tremendous help, there doesn't seem to be very many books specifically on peafowl but I notice most pheasant books will have a chapter or two.

The issues of Peafowl Today are packed with articles covering all facets of raising peas. You might contact the magazine editor to check into back issues. For future members, it might be nice to assemble packets of yearly issues for people to buy. I bought a lot of old issues at one of the conventions and they have served me well!

Go to www.peafowl.com They are the one that wrote The Wacky World of Peafowl. There are 2 volumes of the book plus a DVD and a newsletter. I bought the DVD. It's homemade. I really didn't learn anything from it that I hadn't already learned from this forum, but you do get to actually "see" things that you don't get from a forum. I don't want to turn anyone off from buying the DVD, this is just my personal opinion and someone else might get more out of than me. There's not much info out there and I'm glad to see someone at least tried to get it out there for us. I can't thank everyone here for all the help they've given me Very Happy

Hi, i am new to peafowl and couldn't have managed without this forum. In addition i have a very comprehensive book called: Peafowl: their conservation breeding and management - T.P. Gardiner 1996 - amazon or ebay are probably your best bets for a copy.

Thanks to you all !
Helen, am trying to find that book but no luck yet-will keep at it.
This site has some great info. but I like to have a desk reference, if you will .
featherhead, I don't subscribe to Peafowl today but will look into that for sure also.

Thanks again !
