The Cameo Peafowl is a color mutation which originated in USA in the 1960’s. Like the Purple Peafowl, the Cameo color is a sex linked mutation. This means that there are many more Cameo Peahens than Cameo Peacock.Peacocks are excitable birds. Care should be taken to keep the house in a quiet place. Peacocks do not like harsh sounds, noise and rumblings. Otherwise, they become nervous, may injure themselves or attack neighbors. In order for the birds to remain healthy, their aviary must be kept clean. Change sawdust bedding, ventilate the house, disinfect feeders and add clean water. If in the summer poultry farmers can limit themselves to daylight, then in the winter you need to turn on artificial lighting. This is necessary in order to extend the usual daylight hours for peacocks, since in Moscow it is much shorter. It is recommended to use fluorescent lamps for illumination.
