    I also love your pied peahen. How do you go about free-ranging them durring the day? Our place is 10 acres also but it is a long and narrow 10 acres and I have heard of several people who just let them out for a while but mainly keep them penned so I am interested in it. How do you get them back in the pen? Do you go through a lot of trouble getting them back in? I have also really been interested in peafowl and was glad to finally get some (I have 5).[​IMG]

    Quote:i always feed and water them only in their pen and i leave the gate open during the day so they come and go as they please and wen i shut the gate at night they are always on their roost in their pen and i never have a difficult time with them i just started letting the chick rome freely- so i guess the best way to explain it is they kno were to come to be safe and have food and water wne the want
