Can you raise chickens (hens) and a peacock together?

    We have a dozen pullets, just getting the hang of laying (we are soooo proud) and we were just talking about peacocks. Anyone know? We googled, but couldn't find any info specific about chickens and peacocks together.

    Thanks

    The guy across from me has about 4 peacocks and about 10 chickens and they seem to get along. But they also freerange and are never locked in a pen.

    I have a several month old peachick in with a small chick and a pheasant chick, I haven't had any problems, but if I let the peachick out the larger chickens tend to peck him. =/ I'm sure once he gets larger they won't mess with him...
