The present study was undertaken to evaluate the effect of cage spacing on production, fertility and hatchability of eggs in Indian peafowl at Wildlife Breeding Center in 2010 for a period of 24 weeks. Result of feed consumption in all the three treatment groups of peafowl were statistically significantly different (p< 0.01) (Table 1a). In group C (cage spacing 4.13 x 2.90 m) statistically minimum mean feed (68.95 ± 1.87) was consumed. Statistically maximum mean feed was consumed by group B (cage spacing 4.57 x 4.57 m) which was 97.25 ± 1.00 while the feed consumption in group A (cage spacing 7.25 x 4.15 m) was 81.69 ± 1.40. From this study it is being concluded that peafowl breeding at cage spacing 4.57 x 4.57 m (21 m2 area, per bird space 7 m2) has shown better results for all production parameters.
