Our Peafowl




Actually we are keeping the below mentioned peafowl species, which we strictly have separated and breed. We do not breed hybrids (Spalding), or mixing the individual sub-species of the green peafowl.
Due to the human attempts to create something unique and accompanied by a lot of ignorance,  there were made, based on our view, in the past already too big damage in many peafowl populations. We therefore commit ourselves for an absolute pure species breeding of each species and subspecies.







Pavo Muticus Muticus, Malaysian Green  Peafowl




He is also often referred to as Java Green Peafowl, which is not correct. Scientifically, no distinction is between the Malay and Java green peafowl. But they have to be considered separately as different sub-species, specially when you are breeding. At the moment there are no breeding stocks of the Java subspecies. The human existing breeding stock of Pavo Muticus Muticus is the Malayan subspecies.














Pavo Muticus Imperator, Indo-Chinese green peafowl





As for all green peafowl it is also the same for the subspecies Imperator, the scientific definition as one subspecies is not sufficient. The populations in some cases differ a lot depending on the habitat of ​​distribution. Therefore it is a must for the breeding and preservation to consider from which habitat the animals are originate.
To has a reliable basis for the breeding, we successfully imported on 08/12/2011, 13 pure Indo-Chinese green peafowl from Thailand, whose habitat is in the north of Thailand. With these animals it is now the world's first stud book opened for a sub-species of green peafowl. It is conducted within the focus group for green peafowl (group within the WPA Germany). Anyone who is interested can feel free to contact us.













 Pavo cristatus, Indian Peacock





Almost everyone knows him from parks and zoos. It comes as the name suggests, originally from India. Research has shown that he is in the evolutionarily younger than the green peafowl.
It have to be mentioned, however, that most of human kept blue peacocks do not have much in common with their wild counterparts. Due to the many generations in captivity and the lack of selection our animals are having now a completely different appearance.














We keep all our animals very human terms. All animals eat us out of our hands and are trusting.

All peacocks, including the young animals are used to stay in the cot over the night. The young animals are also eating us out of our hands. This ensures that the changeover to a buyers place will not take long. Up to now, we not know any case in which it came to larger problems.








For breeding, we rely on natural incubation. This limits the number of offspring, of course, a lot. It is only possible to keep 2  max. 3 hens together with one rooster, otherwise there is to much interfere between the hens so that a natural incubation is impossible. In addition you have then only on clutch of eggs per hen, which is only 5-6 eggs per year.
However, this is a must in our view, when we talk about conservation breeding, because only with this it is possible to conserve reliable the natural breeding instinct of the hens.
Another advantage of the natural incubation is, the chicks are growing better and there is no faulty imprinting on humans, which can lead in aggressive animals.
