You raise Peachicks the same way you raise Poults (baby turkeys) it takes 2 yrs for peafowl to mature so if you free range I would wait til they are yearlings, If you decide to pen them 10x20 run with a 10x10 house this is good for three adults or if you just want to keep a pair you could go as small as 8x10 house with a 8x20 run. A male for a hen is hard unless they need new blood lines, a hen for a male easy because everyone can use a extra hen.

Visit these websites and look at there pens.
