We have peafowl and ornamental pheasants for the enjoyment that they give us and our visitors. Our aviaries were constructed to make the birds as comfortable as possible and to help the viewers enjoy the scenery. We also have some birds to sell so others may enjoy them at their homes. We have a few different varieties of peafowl (or peacocks as they are often called). Males are peacocks and females are peahens, but to a lot of people they are all peacocks. We do not have as many varieties as we once had. We only carry a few varieties now.
We have these varieties:
India Blue Pieds
India Blue Silver Pieds
Black Shoulders Silver Pieds
We also have several varieties of Ornamental Pheasants, and other fowl.
We love all of our peafowl and pheasants and we believe they are all beautiful birds. They are a joy to be around and observe their activities. As you can probably tell from the pictures above, we think the Java Green(Muticus-Muticus) peafowl are very special birds. Actually the Muticus-Muticus are the Java Greens and the other two sub species of Green peafowl are the Indo-Chinese(Muticus-Imperators) and the Burmese(Muticus-Specifiers). All of the Green peafowl(Pavo Muticus) are special birds, but we have only raised the Java Greens.
We always intend to try to keep some India Blue peafowl available as they are the most popular variety of peafowl and also one of the most beautiful varieties. We enjoy them. Sometimes we may not have any available because they are so popular. We also try to keep some of the other varieties available. But we are cutting back on some of the varieties that we are keeping. If we do not have the bird that you want then we will try to help you find one, if you would like for us to.
We are concentrating on the Java Greens, India Blues, and Black Shoulders Silver Pieds and several of the ornamental pheasant varieties. We have some great breeder stock of Java Greens(Muticus-Muticus),Temminck Tragopan pheasants, Himalayan Monals(Impeyans) pheasants, and several other varieties of pheasants. We have also recently got some Palawan Peacock Pheasants to further advance our exotic pheasants collection.

The incubators are humming and some of the hens are laying and producing nicely but some of the hens have been a little hesitant about getting started this year.. I gave them a little pep talk about getting more productive or they could be replaced...They seemed to be very concerned....haha.. The brooders will be full of little chicks before long and the sounds of the young birds will be nice to hear... Another breeding season is here! And we also have some varmints that are invading the aviaries at night and feeding on some of the fowl that they can catch..We are trying to catch them one way or another but so far they have outsmarted us..lol..Hopefully they will not get as many birds as last year..But this is the problem you have sometimes with plastic netting on the top...It can be cut by these sneaky rascals... The last two years is the first times that I have had problems like this...It is discouraging...but it is what happens in nature...
