We previously had chickens and have some leftover food from them. Should I try to start the peafowl on it? He's free-range and feral, doesn't allow us closer than 10 feet away and runs if something unexpected happens. Is there a way to gain his trust? We don't know much about these birds. No one's claimed them and they seem to be very happy together. The peafowl roosts in different trees every night, so I'm not sure how well he'll do in the winter and if he'll stay with the Guinea.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I do not want to lose this beautiful surprise! His/her name is Gerald/Geraldine and we and the neighbors are very happy to have this!
Also, could anyone tell the gender and approximate age? One of our neighbors said it's a female since the males have a tail that drags, but I'm thinking it's a young male.
