    They are very easy too raise.Of course they need to be in a covered pen(either wire,wood,metal roof,an apron around the perimeter to keep out predeators,perches at least 2 feet down from the top of the pen so something can't reach down and grab them.Their clutches are 6-12 eggs per clutch.They will triple clutch in a season if you take their eggs.There maybe a little times in between clutches where they will not lay.Now before laying season which you should do now,give them some vitamins and electrolytes in their water to give them a little boost as laying eggs knocks the heck out of them.They should start laying late march early april.They can be housed with peafowl,but I would not house them with turkeys(just my own thought on the turkeys).They need to be wormed twice daily.I do mine in Feb before breeding season and again in August after hatching season.After you worm them,you have to worm them again 10 days later to kill the cycle of worms.
    Should be fed gamebird feed and given treats whenever you feel like it but don't over do it with the treats,maybe 2 times per week will do.
    Even a small kibble dry dog food is good for them as it contains more nutrition then grain feed.
    In N.H.,Tony.
