Peafowl 101: Basic care, genetics, and answers. - Page 20

Peafowl eating squirrels never heard that one. The peacock is no threat to your cats. There is a slight possibility that the peacock will attempt to attack but that is very unlikely assuming the large amount of space he is occupying and that cats are much faster and want to stay to themselves usually.
Would you like you, if you met you?

Great things always start from the inside
Just look at an egg
If broken by an outside force
life ends.
If broke by an inside force
life begins.
Raising:
A lot of chickens and pigeons, turkeys, peafowl IB and BS, pheasants, lady Amherst, red/yellow/dark throat golden, snowflake quail trio, coturnix quail, frilled pigeons, and ornamental ducks

Cats have raised litters of kittens down in between bales of hay in the peacock barn without any trouble. They don't seem to interact much, stroll right past each other. Both groups consume large amounts of cat food.

Raccoons are everywhere, don't let that stop you. Build a solid pen and get some birds!

Hi. This is probably somewhere else on here, but I'd like to ask what is the general temperament of peacocks and hens, assuming they are raised from eggs or babies -preferably eggs-? I'm not sure I'll ever get any -I've got emu eggs now and I'm not sure how much more my parents will allow-, but I'd really like to know what sort of pets they make, as they're very pretty and their genetics and variations interest me.

I think he must have stolen some of my chicken food because I found a small eyed feather a few weeks ago. I would like to raise peafowl but have too many raccoons and I think the eggs would just get decimated. For now I'll just keep enjoying the pictures.
the reason he is hanging out is he is prolly eating cat food lol
