    Okay, Well right now, I have ducks and chickens. But once I get my new barn (20x20) It will have seperate rooms for my ducks and chickens, and I was hoping to get some other kind of bird.
    And Peacocks are Gorgeous, so I would LOVE to get some eventually.

    What feed do they need?
    What kind of set up is required for them?
    Can they free range?
    Do they get along with ducks and chickens ( Not being housed with, but free ranging)
    How many would you need to keep one happy?

    And any other information would be happily accepted [​IMG] I want to be fully educated before getting anything .

    Thanks

    Peas make awsome pets not to mention how pretty they are. There is a sticky topic at the top of this peafowl forum that tells just about everything about caring for peafowl. I'd post the link but I'm on my Nook color so I can't.

    Here is the United Peafowl Association website too, it is very useful for finding breeders in your state, lots of information, ect.
    http://www.peafowl.org/

    Here is a favorite website of mine showing a few of the 225 varieties of peafowl.

    You can free-range peafowl and it is better to free-range young peafowl or ones you have raised.

    A lot of the peafowl breeder websites are very interesting and informative and you can look through this breeder listing page and click on all the website links to find more information.

    Have fun! When I wanted peafowl and started researching about them it was really fun and interesting!
