We have 5 acres about 2 miles from town. No busy roads close by. I know he will probably roam over to our neighbors' properties and will talk to them before we let him out. We do have big trees on our place, so plenty of room for him to roost out of reach of coyotes. We see raccoon occasionally and have owls around. It's the owls and raccoon I am concerned about since they could get to him at night in a tree. That is why I am concerned about the white feathers.
I was hoping that we'd be able to lure him in at night by keeping food in his enclosure. Will that work?
Years ago when we lived in town, there was a peacock that lived in our neighborhood for a number of years. This was within a block of a busy road. He would roost in large trees in a small park near our house and I think someone in the neighborhood kept food and water out for him. He never seemed to stray far.
