Hi everybody! I have been thinking about getting some peafowl to hang around the farm. I am interested in free ranging them and I have just a few questions. I'm not in any rush to get the birds, I'm just the obsessive planner type 1. What is the best way to keep my population at a manageable number? I don't want to be overrun with the birds, and I'm not interested in breeding to sell chicks. Is penning them during mating season the best way to do this? 2. When exactly is mating season for the peafowl? I have read that it's March through August, however I am in Minnesota and I was wondering if it is shorter because of colder weather lasting pretty long here. 3. Do peafowl and horses coexist well? 4. I read somewhere that if you raise peafowl from chicks with chickens they will kind of learn their boundaries and mostly stay close to home. Is there any truth to this? If anybody has any tips for keeping peafowl in MN or a similar climate I'd love to hear them as well! Thank you in advance!
