    I have done some research on this as well. I know they will sleep in a chicken coop as long as it is at least six feet wide and tall. Their trans are fully grown after two years i believe, which is when peahens start laying eggs and peacocks start mating. I do know that people either love them or hate them. They are REALLY loud i guess, but their colors make up for that imo. They are pretty destructive as they will land on top of your car and poop all over the place. You can't have them is you live near a road and they can get out because they will stand in front of your car and flash you. I think they eat game feed. I do not own peafowl, nor have i even owned them. This is just what i discovered during my research a few days ago.

    Really I thought they just look pretty and walk around your back yard and add as a feature in the garden. I think I'll give them a miss might try ducks. They seam to be less work and not as violent.

    Believe me, I was thinking the same thing. I REALLY wanted peafowl until i found out more about them. I might still get some just to add that little extra flair.
