Boys' 2010 Defiance County Fair Peafowl Display.
We started out as Dad, Joseph, and Lawrence with a quad of purple peafowl. Of course, as anyone involved with peafowl knows, we soon became interested in  many of the other colors, patterns, and hybrids available.  Soon the spacious 4 acre yard became not so spacious as pens sprang up everywhere! Pam and Alex were later added to the farm team.
Pam discovered a Cape Barren Goose at Lewis's farm at our 1st UPA Convention and insisted that we get one (pair :-)!). From the initial 4 birds we now have almost 100 here.
We are located approximately 3 miles north of Continental, Ohio. It is 55 minutes to Toledo, 15 minutes to Ottawa, and 45 minutes to Lima. The Rock and Roll museum is approximately 2 1/2 hours northeast of us in Cleveland.
We currently raise six different color and/or pattern mutations of the India Blue peafowl (Pavo Cristatus). Please see the
breeds tab to view them.
Joseph acquired a pair of 2006 hatch
silver pieds in November '06 and I acquired a pair of '06 hatch midnight blackshoulders at about the same time. We  added these to our breeding program in 2008.
In 2010 we added a trio of Buford bronze split to blackshoulder and white-eye peafowl and sold off the midnight blackshoulders. With any luck the blackshoulder chicks will get us a male
Buford bronze blackshoulder!
A pair of
Cape Barren Geese ,and a pair of Pavo Muticus Muticus (Java Green) are on the 'to do' list for the near future.
We also raise Rhode Island Reds, Wellsummers, coral blue, and pearl Guinea fowl.
