I just started with chickens and ducks. They are free-ranging lawn ornaments and pets. I live in a circa 1760 farmhouse that could SO use some peacocks strutting on the lawns. My father-in-law says our local predators (fox, coon, hawks) do not go after peas They are loud and obnoxious, right? Do they get aggressive toward children, pets, my beloved chickens and ducks? Are they easily trained to go into their nightime houses? Are they at all people-social? I am not a coddler, but like my birds that like to hang near me. I am thinking next Spring if I get some.
