As you all probably know already, I have never had chickens. I was just curious as to the differences between peafowl and chickens. I know they are different I just don't know from experience. This is aside from the obvious like color. I am more interested in the behavior differences. Here are the differences that I can think of from what I have heard: Peafowl _____ eat less. roam further. are better at flying. are generally not as tame. Chickens _____ the rooster calls in the morning all year long (right?) lay all year round for the most part. more tame and easier to pick up and hold. eat more. reach maturity faster but I think live shorter lives. I am sure there are other really big major differences. I also noticed people who have chickens but not peafowl sometimes ask which peafowl breed has the best temperament. When I hear that I am like "Huh?" So I am guessing chickens can then be compared to domestic dogs and peafowl are more like domestic foxes? But on a side note I compare my group of peafowl to a pack of wolves.
