    Here I have attempted to make a complete list of Rollulinae and Pavoninae present in American and Canadian collections. Only information 2018 or newer was used. Domestic species are excluded (this includes any peafowl or Blue-breasted Quail that shows a domestic phenotype. If the zoo has even one bird that displays a wild phenotype, they are eligible for this list). Information on missing holders or species, as well as information on subspecies or populations is welcomed.

    Grey peacock-pheasant at Sylvan Heights and Little Rock. Both Little Rock and 3 Palms Zoo in Delaware claim to have pure Red junglefowl, but I don't know how true that is.

    So I can't seem to edit this post, but I also want to note that they also have or had Green junglefowl and Red junglefowl recently

    Are there really no holders of wild-type Red Junglefowl?

    Capron Park Zoo does not, and never has, had mountain peacock-pheasants.

    San Diego hasn't held Chestnut-Bellied Hill-Partridge in a long time. There weren't any left when I visited January 2018 and when I friend of mine was trying to find any holders of Arborophila in the US he came up empty across the board.

    Also all Great Argus are the nominate.

    I'm sure there's some somewhere, they're available in limited numbers in the private trade. Little Rock does indeed claim to hold some of these. There's also Grey Junglefowl in the private trade, though I don't know of any public holders with them. As for other junglefowl, Bronx, Audubon, Baton Rogue, DAK, Miami, Fort Wayne, and maybe still Houston keep Green. I believe San Antonio and Staten Island have lost them since my visits. Along with Bronx and Minnesota, Central Park still has a Sri Lankan as well.

    Both the San Diegos keep Yellow-Necked Spurfowl still.

    Miami should have Mountain Bamboo-Partridge. Omaha had animals signed as Mountain when I visited in 2019 but I've since seen them referred to as Chinese.

    -Central Park keeps Crested Wood-Partridge.
    -Bronx holds Palawan Peacock-Pheasant in addition to Mountain. Gladys Porter, Riverbanks, -Miami, National Aviary, Santa Barbara, Rosamond Gifford, and Toledo also keep them. Philadelphia does not keep them.
    -Miami and San Antonio both keep Germain's PP.
    -Little Rock and San Diego should both have Grey PP.
    -Beardsley and Prospect Park keep Indian Peafowl.
    -I think DAK has Green Peafowl.
