    Can they be kept together? I have a 8 by 8 henhouse with a 25 by 30 yard. I have 6 chickens in it and I lock them up at night. The fence is 5 ft tall with no top the chickens are heavy breeds and don't fly. Thanks

    Not a good idea; the chickens can carry some diseases that are very bad for peafowl. Best to keep them separate.
