    Oh oops sorry forgot the question after I saw the pictures![​IMG] I think your peachick would be fine if you took it outside and it was supervised but it is too small to free-range 24/7 if you were planning on doing that.[​IMG] Why I say he is too small to live free-range right now 24/7 is hawks. Hawks can get small peafowl but once he is fully grown he will be fine if you were planning on free-ranging.[​IMG]

    Quote:thank you for answering! [​IMG] i was planning for him to first go in a secure outdoor pen, so he could get used to being outside, then i would move him in with the other peacocks, in the other avairy. i donnt let my peacocks free range because i live right next to a road, and i worry about them getting hit [​IMG]
    so, does my plan sound ok? [​IMG]
