Peacocks and Wild Turkeys

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have two Peacocks and two Peahens. Haven't seen to much of the hens lately. I figure they must be setting on some eggs.

While the Chicks away the birds will play.

I've noticed one of the Peacocks have taken a shine to a wild turkey hen I've seen often lately in the pasture. She mostly always in the same area. I figured she has some eggs around there too. 

So two questions.

 

One: They don't crossbred do they?

Two: Seems I read maybe here that the Peacock will sometimes fly off with turkeys. That O'course is my main concern.

 

Do I need to take any action to keep my bird?

When my friend moved to his farm many years ago, he was frequently visited by a large flock of wild turkeys that had several peafowl running with them.  I am not certain as to whether or not they can crossbreed.
