    I'm trying to find out how to keep everyone happly and healthy. They are both in seperate runs but I'd like to have them out in the pasture spreading poop(the original job I thought peafowl would do, not!) I keep them all wormed with safeguard. I had a friend who said she lost peafowl because of chickens, but others say they have no problems. No one really goes into details on how though. HELP !!!!![​IMG]

    Exactly what you are looking for in the line of information? Chickens and peafowl can free range together without an issue. If your friend lost chickens to peafowl they where either crammed in a small area or some one was carrying a disease. Peafowl on their own will not kill chickens.

    Once your birds are used to their coops and runs they will return on their own in the evening. So that is not an issue. Clean coops and healthy birds are the main requirement here.

    I have to ask if you are doing my favorite thing and overanalyzing the situation?[​IMG]

    If you have specific questions, ask away. No such thing as a stupid question.
