    We've raised a single peacock amongst quail and pheasants, and it believed it was lord of all of them, and the quail all slept under his wings at night.... but I don't know how well it would work with more than one. I know at least quail and pheasant can be raised fine together. My guess would be that if they were hatched together, that group might be ok together.

    Yeah we fed ours game bird starter/grower/maintenance with some kitten food for the peacock and a little cracked corn thrown in for all of them. You just have to be sure that the run is big enough for the peacocks/turkeys because they require a lot of space. Our peacock actually ended up getting spooked and breaking his neck after a year trying to get out of the coop and I think if it'd been a little bigger he might not have done that.
