Hi This is my first ever post! I have had poultry on a small scale for years, chickens and ducks and now geese, they are all family pets and spoilt rotten. I have always loved Peacocks, and when my youngest son asked for one for his birthday it seemed a brilliant way of indulging my love of them and sorted out his birthday present! I (He) now have two three week old pea-chicks, I had them at a week old, no idea of sex, although I have a hunch they could be a pair (fingers crossed) I have been reading up on the nutrition and care, they are eating very well and have tripled in size......I have a heat lamp over their run (which is at the moment indoors to prevent predators!) My question is; How long do they need a constant heat source? I have turned it off a couple of times but they do seem to be huddled up, fluffing their feathers up and shivery when I go to check them, and look happier when its switched back on; obviously from this I am leaving it on, but how long should it be before I try weaning them off it again, looking towards them being introduced eventually to the outside world of my garden? Would appreciate the advice of more knowledgeable and experienced Peafowl people!!
