Muscovy versus Peacock

    ok..today my muscovy and peacock got into it! Both males...egos maybe?
    my questions is why would my muscovy and peacock just go at each other and
    start fighting...the muscovy grapping a bill full of feathers until they pull out.
    they only seperated beacause I got ahold of the muscovy and pulled him off the
    peacocks back side...the peacocks went onto the barn and the muscovy strutted like
    he was the winner...

    an hour or so later they went at it again...feet and claws first then grabbing feathers
    again and then being seperated again....

    any ideas? are they trying to show whos boss or top dog or what?? they have never had any
    problems before and this male muscovy has always been the sweetest of the ducks...

    I will post under peafowl section but am trying to find answers if anyone can help...
