Ok so I did a big no no ...got Peacocks before I did alot of research. But they are soooo beautiful and I just love them. I got a male and female at a chicken swap today at a very good price from what Ive seen others go for. Anyhow I need some experts to step up and tell me every thing I need to know. I want to let them free range but I know they need caged for awhile so they can get use to us. Any ideas how long they should be caged? I plan on trimming their feathers so when I do let them out they wont fly away. The owners said they feed them corn and they often got into the dog food. I was planning on feeding them chicken layer and chicken scratch, they are now a year old so would this feed be ok? And how old are they when they start to mate? When will the female start laying eggs? Im going to try to get some pics later to post after they get a chance to settle in abit.
