    I have chickens in with some of my older Peafowl to help keep the mouse population down, you just don't want have young chicks together. Yes you can free range all your birds they may or may not run together.

    Myself I would NEVER penned chicken with peafowl or turkey. Chicken can be carriers of diseases without harm to the chicken,but deadly to peafowl or turkey. Free range less risk.
