Okay so the house we recently purchased came with chickens and a peafowl pair. (I tell you this so you know that other than reading a book about peafowl and the limited info I got from the former sellers, I really don't know that much.) The peafowl are free range, they do their own thing, hang out with the chickens especially during feed time and treat time, but roost themselves in a tree at night and are pretty much zero maintenance for us. I didn't realize how attached I'd become to my royal couple (as I call them) until my peahen went missing a couple days ago. Well we found her and she's sitting on a nest! YAY! Here's the thing, I don't think she's very safe where she's at (we have foxes, bobcats, snakes, the occasional black bear, etc.). And she's on the edge of a field that isn't my property and I'm worried the farmer will come through with his tractor again before she's done incubating them (she's not far enough out to get run over, but I'm sure it'd make her flip out). The former owners of our house told us this will be her first year of sexual maturity and that in their experience peahens aren't the best at choosing safe locations for their nests. They used to have a second peafowl pair and in the past they've always moved the hen and her eggs into a spare enclosure to keep her safe during the incubation period. I'm afraid of stressing her out by doing this, and don't want her to abandon her eggs or anything as we don't have an incubator for peafowl eggs. - Does anyone have any advice on this? - Should we just leave her be and hope for the best? - Should we move her into a spare enclosure (we have one enclosure that has an outdoor area that is 8x8x8 and an indoor area I'm not sure of the size)? - Or my husband also contemplated building some sort of enclosure around her (she's against a fence though so it would only have 3 sides and the top and so snakes and such could still reach through to her and her eggs from that fourth side)? But that last option seems really complicated and difficult plus I'd think she'd need to get up at some point for water right? - And if we do move her to the enclosure, should I provide her with some feed and water, will she get up to get these things? And when/how should I move her to keep it as stress free as possible? I'm so lost... Thank you in advance for any and all help. I just don't want to lose Henry's mate (I wouldn't mind getting some healthy little heirs out of it, either)!
