Hi all! I have been wanting to get some peacocks, but I know NOTHING about them. I wold like to know what they eat, if they can live in a pen with chickens, ducks and geese, what all the best sellers, the friendliest, how to hatch and raise them, just the basics for now. Oh and I know NOTHING about color and breeds and all that kind of thing. Thanks!
