Quick question about mating season - is there anything we should be adding to their diet for the peahen during this time? Would the layena I give my hens do anything for her as well?
side note - when I picked this pair up, they were being fed sweet cob. I immediately started them off with game feed (like I read here).....but the peahen kept running over to my neighbors (1/4 a mile away!!) and eating their food! I finally got some sweet cob for them, mix it with the game feed, and she hasn't left the property since. whew! I supplement now with some wild bird seed, walnuts, and shrimp occasionally. The shrimp is always the first to disappear.
As for frog legs, I'm in the northwest so they are very expensive at the store. Fortunately, I think they get their fill of amphibians - we have a seasonal pond that screams with frogs every night in the spring. Small frogs- the size of my thumb nail!
