Ooooh, I'm excited. I'm going to get our third Charcoal hen. Can't wait to see her. This will put us at 10 birds total.

Some people have a pair, some people have several, and some have hundreds of peafowl. For the website and UPA to serve its membership better, knowing how many birds you have could be very important. Because we care for our birds a little differently depending on the sheer number, would you consider taking the poll below to let us know how many peafowl you keep? This would help the UPA tailor information, news and articles to the needs of its supporters.



I have between 60 & 70 head of peafowl. Can't have more till I get more pens built.

Thought I'd answer the poll regarding how many peafowl I have but don't know if I'm doing this right. Haven't been on the site much since I joined so don't know my way around. Shame on me.

I have 12 peafowl. A mature IB peacock came with the property. I bought him 3 peahens and intended to get no more. Hmmmmmmm, what happened, LOL!!!

Hi Andy, and welcome. You should be able to find more Javas by checking the UPA members directory. Click on a state and browse for the color(s) you want. Let us know what you get, okay?

Thanks Featherhead, the birds i have now i have purchased from Ron and Jeannie Guitreau out of Gonzales, La. She has very beautiful birds. Unfortunly she only had one Java for sale. I plan to buy more birds from them in the near future. Thanks @ndy

. . . for Animallover516,

Peafowl are not good urban birds. In the spring, they can get quite loud (mating season). Also, when they hear an unexpected noise (anytime of the year), they call as well. It's not a chirp or a tweet or even a crow -- this piercing call can carry for a half-mile or more . . . they're frequently referred to as good "watch dog" birds as anything new, they start calling. Fine for when you DO have an intruder, but not so good when you open the door, close the door, have a friend walk by, a car drive by, etc. They're beautiful birds and they can be trained, but they're definitely a bird you want to keep outdoors (not a house pet) and not in a crowded urban setting....

I may as well jump in! I have four young peachicks which all appear to be males -- IB split to white-- no more room right now for any more but maybe next spring after I get these settled into their new & larger permanent pen I will be looking for mates for them.

I have 6. A male green, female green split pied, male silver pied, male bronze (yearling), and two blue yearlings. I think the one is a male, so I will free range him to keep the males even. Looking for 2 more females though. I want a silver pied female and maybe a purple.

I only have 4 so far, but I doubt that will last long, lol. Hoping for fertile eggs this coming summer

My first 2 were a couple of 2011 IB Peahens that I got when they were 2 days old, my 3rd is a very handsome 2009 IB Peacock, 4th is a feral IB Peahen that maybe has a splash of Spalding in her somewhere, unknown age... but she laid last season (without a mate), so I'm crossing my fingers she will accept my pretty boy and lay fertile eggs for me!

I want some Pieds and Whites in the near future in a bad way!

Right now I have 7 IB peafowl, but will probably sell 1-2 of the chicks when they get older.
