Can peafowl be fed raw soybeans as a protein extra? I used to let my ducks, geese and chickens run in the bean fields after harvest, but cannot find any information on feeding them to peafowl! Does anyone out there raise crickets or mealworms for their peas? We just got 23 birds quite suddenly when the opportunity arose and are in a learning curve. We still do not know what colors we have for certain, as there were IBs, black shoulders and whites all running together--over 100 birds--and it was just a "take what we catch for you" situation! So we have all ages, and so far, we are not sure if we have white eyes, splits, etc......when the sun comes out, we will take pics and post in the hope someone can help us with colors! We are so excited, as I have waited 55 years to have peafowl Building pens today and tomorrow. Most of the birds are living with a friend who had a BIG pen already and will be hatching the eggs in the spring and summer. I kept two pair here, but will sell one male soon as I figure out which one I am keeping! Does anyone hatch the eggs under their chicken hens? I have lots of setting hens. What is the usual hatch % if you do it that way?
