Hey y'all I am Alicia. My family just got our first India Blue peacock (Peafowl) he is 9 weeks old and we don't know a lot about raising them but I fell in love with them about 5 years ago at a friends house they had them free roaming. The gentleman we got Mr. Peacock (as my 3 yr old call's him) said that he needs to be housed off the ground until next year......???? We also plan to get two females to house him with and we plan to get a trio of pied's and my question is how long do they need to be housed off ground and what is the best way to house them as little ones and adults (how big best materials separating one trio from the other etc). We just purchased our first home and we are in a residential neighborhood (neighbors do have a small farm) but I do not want them to just free roam as the front of our home is right on the road so I need to know the best and most comfortable way to house them! Thanks in advance!
