    We are two weeks into fostering a young peachick who was abandoned. So far it is going well. Our home smells like a coop however. The chick has imprinted to humans and is hopelessly spoiled.
    Does anyone know if this chick will ever be able to be released with other peafowl or will he be a misfit.

    I do not know. I attempted imprinting a peachick this year but after some complications my peachick died. There are others on here with imprinted peafowl, so they will be able to provide you with some useful information.
