    I am a newby here! I am interested in raising some peafowl. Right now I have 3 Golden Laced Cochin chicks, I also plan on getting some Ameraucana's. In the near future, I would like to raise some peafowl. I am wondering if I will be able to mix them in the run with the chickens. Right now I have a 12x24x6 run and a big chicken house. My plan is to have a separate peafowl house, but hopefully they can share the run... maybe I can/should extend the run too? I am probably posting prematurely... I am still in the process of investigating, lol! I just figure who better to ask, ya know? Thanks in advance for any info!

    You can house them in that perfectly. You have a bigger run than I do and I house my chickens and peafolw toghther. I am building my peafowl their own coop because they are allot more wild than the chickens. But they got along fine, You will need a roof on your run or else your peafowl will fly out.
