    I'm so sorry about your hen, did you ever find out what was wrong? I would wait awhile to put the babies in with him until they are a little older, unless you make a seperate area in the pen. Older peafowl can often be aggressive towards younger ones. If he is more laid back he may do alright, but mixing ages exposes the babies to different creepy crawly stuff they might not be ready for. I had put my 3 month olds in with my peafowl when i first started, and luckly they were fine, just got a little roughed up for awhile. It depends on your peafowls temperment and such. Your call, good luck with your little ones!
