Can peacocks/peahens get along with chickens?

Thread Starter 

We are thinking about possibly getting peacocks, but we don't know if we should let them sleep in the same pen/coop or if we should build a new one...

Not a good idea to house together. Peafowl are susceptible to Blackhead (histomoniasis) the same as turkeys. Chickens are the carriers.
