Rare Peafowl Details

Rare Peafowl 

There are 12 approved and recognized colors of peafowl according to the UPA (United Peafowl Association). Within those 12 colors, there are multiple combinations of patterns currently equaling 225 different peafowl varieties. The rare peafowl colors are genetic mutations. Many of the unusually colored peafowl have feathers that fade during the course of the summer, creating an ever-changing palette of iridescent colors. 

We have a wide assortment of the rainbow of colors and varieties of peafowl; availability fluctuates as these are very rare birds.

Like all peafowl, the rare and unusual varieties of Peafowl are easy to care for. Peafowl are robust and hardy birds. They do fine in colder climates but should be provided with some shelter for wet winter weather. Peafowl are savvy birds and can take care of themselves against many predators. If not kept in a covered aviary, they will take shelter in trees at nighttime. Be sure to plan your shelter taking their long train feathers into consideration. Roosts need to be at least 7 feet high to keep the feathers from dragging on the ground. And room should be provided for when the birds display.

Peafowl breeding season is springtime through midsummer. Peahens will lay clutches of 6-10 eggs. Incubation takes 28 days. Rare Peafowl chicks are often surprising in the color variations that can be produced.
