    Hi, I was just wondering if anyone had ever tried this mix of species and I wanted to know how it worked out. Some questions I had were: Can I worm the peafowl and the chickens with the same wormer, Will the peafowl bully the chickens, and should I let a hen from the coop raise the peachicks so the "flock bond" will be better b/n the peafowl and chickens or just brood them myself then put them in later?

    I don't know what to answer you but there are some folks on the street to the south of us that have chickens, guineas and peafowl all running together.
