I have never had peacocks before but over the weekend a friend brought me 4 peachicks. Apparently she had been in the woods over the weekend and found a dead mother. When they picked her up out came 9 chicks. She was only able to catch 4 the others got away. Since I have chickens she brought them to me. I have them in a brooder but what should I do? One of them looks like if his neck is twisted. Do they eat the same food as chickens? Should I raise them with the chickens? I read something about worming them? I have raised Guinea fowl before with chickens and since they have been raised with the chickens since they were chicks they don't roost in the trees they roost in the coop. Will this also happen with the peacocks if I raise them with the chicks? Sorry so many questions!!!
