Looking for peacocks for sale in PA?
The good news is that there are a number of places you can buy and raise these magnificent-looking birds in Pennsylvania.
Here are some tips on how to find peafowl for sale if you live in PA:
Buying Peafowl Chicks, Hatching Eggs, and Peacocks Online
In my opinion, buying peacocks, peafowl, or any other birds is easiest by ordering from an online hatchery.
I recommend buying from Cackle Hatchery. Cackle Hatchery is one of the largest online hatcheries and they stock a number of species and variations of peafowl.
At the time of writing this, Cackle Hatchery had in stock:
- Assorted Peafowl Chicks - ~$59/ea
- Indian Blue Peafowl - ~$450/pair
- Spalding Purple Black Shoulder Peafowl - ~$550/pair
- Opal Peafowl - ~$550/pair
- White Peafowl - ~$550/pair
- and loads more colors and varieties.
There really is no easier way to order the exact type of peafowl you want and have them turn up at your door in a matter of days!
Why Use an Online Hatchery Over a Local Seller?
Most people start trawling through local classifieds when looking for peacocks for sale, but personally, I'd use an online hatchery every time.
The main reasons I recommend using an online hatchery over a local seller are:
- A wider variety of peacocks and peafowl to choose from
- Peacocks and peafowl are shipped directly to your door
- You can order exactly the number of peacocks or peafowl you want (local sellers often have minimum purchase quantities)
- Peacocks and peafowl from online hatcheries are typically cheaper than those from local sellers
- You will get some form of guarantee and hatcheries have better biosecurity measures
- You get to benefit from the expertise of professional breeders if you have any questions
This doesn't mean you can't find peafowl locally you'll be perfectly happy with, but these are all valid reasons to keep in mind.

Is It Legal to Raise Peacocks in Pennsylvania?
The first thing you should do when deciding to raise peacocks or peafowl on your land is to check with your local office.
The exact laws can vary from district to district, and anything could have changed since I published this post.
That said though, as of now it's perfectly legal to raise peafowl in the state of Pennsylvania as long as you adhere to your local ordinance laws.
How Easy/Difficult Is It to Raise Peafowl?
This is a difficult question to answer because it can depend on your exact circumstances.
Some people find raising peacocks very easy, while others find it quite difficult.
The best way to get an accurate idea of how easy or difficult it would be for you to raise peacocks is to speak with someone who already does.
When you've found some peacocks for sale, ask the sellers loads of questions about what it's like, how much space they recommend, the items you need, etc.
Overall, if you want to raise peacocks, I don't think it's going to be a problem.
I know a lot of people who have raised peafowl, and I'm pretty sure they would all tell me it's a lot more rewarding than it is difficult.
I think the same can be said for most pets!
