    I am a first time pea fowl owner. We used to have them but i was 4yrs old so i dont remember. But i have alot of questions here they are:

    1. What feed do i feed them?
    2. Can they be in with chicks?
    3. When can they breed?
    4. When should i let them free range?
    5. How long should i keep them pinned up?
    6. Is their laying season the same as guineas?
    7. Are they hard to hatch?

    I will probably think of more so be ready.

    Before anyone asks i also have chickens and guineas. Durning the guinea egg season they are both pinned up in the yard, its maybe an acre. But in the summer free range.
