We have 1 peacock that is 6 months old. We have had him about 3 weeks. Within his first week with us the barn doors flew open and he got out. Im not sure how long he was out for, but he stuck around. He stayed near the barn and wanted to go back in the barn. Once he went back in we locked him back up bc we read he should be locked up for 3 months. Since he stayed near the barn that one time, do you think he will continue to stick around if we let him free range?
