    I would worry that the peacocks would kill the chickens.

    Many peapeople here keep peas with chickens, turkeys, ducks, etc.
    Hopefully they will step in here and give you some experienced advice on this topic.
    However, in the meantime, you absolutely do not have to worry about the peas killing any chickens!

    I recently moved my coming two year old peas inside my chickenhouse because of the persistant frigid temps.My chickens always was around the young peas pen outside so they knew each other.But the second day they were all together I spent time watching them interact when I fed and watered them. To my amazement a young bssp hen displayed to my Black Langshan roo,who is bigger than this hen.after about a minute the roo decided to pass in front of this hen to get to the feeder and the hen lowered her tail,and proceeded to make a quick peck at the roos comb as he went by.I've seen this several times now but the fight doesn't continue,just a quick peck from the peas and that's it.the chickens squak a bit but no harm is done.
