How to raise peacocks?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

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!

2 BR Hens, 1 SLW Hen, 1 Bantam Old English Mix Hen, 1 EE Rooster chick, 6 Bantam chicks, 2 mixed ducks, 2 African Geese, 4 Dogs, 2 Horses, 1 Calf and 1 Guinea Pig.  I'm home-schooled!         .                           Owner of Friends Poultry and I'm loving it!                                    I'm one of the Crazy BYC pullets: The funny one!!

I'd recommend checking out the peafowl sticky at the top of this thread first for lots of great peafowl information.  It will help get you started with a lot of general information and also lists out the colors and patterns found. 

Think you'll find the Peafowl 101 thread very informative http://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=388465 thumbsup
