Our new peafowl are setting in nicely and the male has been doing his dance for the girls - so pretty! Anyway, spring is in the air, and I have a feeling we'll have some peahen eggs before long.
What are the tricks of the trade as far as providing a nest box for them? One person told us that you need to take away their roost so they won't lay eggs up there and have them drop to the ground...does that make sense to you guys with peafowl??
Just looking for some newbie advice. At the moment they have a roost but no nest box of any kind. They do have a dirt/ground floor in the shelter and access to graze around in their pen.
And, now just a gratuitous shot of our peacock showing off for the ladies.
