Around June this year I got 2 peafowl that were around a month and a half. I got an Indian Blue male and a Purple female. They are both inseparable, and when I got them, my ducks were already 2 months old (15 ducks). They all do fine together, the ducks will occasionally pick on the peacocks, but everyone free ranges on 4 acres. Just a few days ago I was charged by my peacock, I assumed it was because he saw the food scoop, He didn't hurt me, just caught me off guard. So ever since then when I bring food out I see him eye me and it looks like he is about to charge. I usually stop and stand my ground and keep a good distance from him and he doesn't bother me. BUT today when I was herding my ducks (peafowl were with them) from my neighbors yard to mine, my peacock started to gang up on me and we had a stand off. When I back off he started charging, and if I came towards him and he backed up. This went on a few times until I flared my shirt to mimic peacock behavior of fanning out, and then he totally backed off. He did chase my cat after that, but never charged or attacked him. Is this behavior going to continue and is what I am doing to back him off okay or is just going to encourage him? I done a little bit of research about peacock aggression and read that they treat you like an equal, or it is dominance/pecking order. My peahen is so sweet and docile, maybe he trying to protect her. Should I get more peahens? He is still a baby so I thought it was weird that he would be aggressive this early on? Also my ducks are starting to get hormonal, so I maybe that he is feeding off of that. This is him. I looked online to see how old he exactly could be but I don't know for sure. When he came to me he was so tiny i could cup him in my hands, and now he is a big boy.
