I have had my peafowl for a month & they don't eat there food! I have given them layer, crumble, game feed. None of it seems to leave the feeder. They eat cat food, corn, watermellon & cooked eggs. I have tried mixing feed in with eggs & other things but they won't touch it. They are acting fine, but I think they should be eating more. When I give them mellon & such sometimes they don't even look @ it for a few hours, so they are not starving. Overall I think they are thriving. The peahen has even laid 3 eggs this week-- since it is finally less than 110 now!
