Most people call them peacocks, but that’s the correct name for only the males of this type of bird. Females are called peahens, and the whole group are peafowl. There are three types of peafowl in the world: Indian, green, and Congo. Most people are familiar with the Indian peafowl, since that is the kind found in many zoos and parks. Indian peafowl live in India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka, green peafowl are found in Southeast Asia, and Congo peafowl are from central Africa.
Breeding Peacocks for sale
Peafowl are polygamous birds. One male will mate with four to five peahens. Most peahens will not lay in their first year of production. During the second and third years, they will produce a few eggs. It is not until their fourth year that they will lay five to nine eggs a year. If eggs are removed from the nest, a peahen may lay another clutch or two, but she will not be able to incubate more than ten eggs. If there are too many eggs, artificial incubation or a foster mother turkey hen can be used. Thick shrubbery is good place for nesting. There is also the option to confine peahens to a pen or yard during egg laying period in the spring to early summer.
Peafowl are a difficult bird to confine. They frequently fly and perch on high trees. If you are going to confine a peafowl, the area should be tall with a high roosting shelf. There should also be a large, grass-covered run included. The runs should be at least seven feet tall to prevent birds from jumping up and injuring themselves.
