this is probably a dumb question, but peafowl are different than chickens, so just worrying. We bought a young (2013) IB peahen in November, to replace our 3 yo Princess, who disappeared in September. We had Princess for three years and she was a very laid back, friendly hen. We have another hen, Sweetpea, who's two. When we got Sweetpea (last year) she and Princess were best buddies right out of the starting gate, they never fought at all. There was a year's difference between them. I just let Snap (the 2013 hen) out of quarantine today. She has been seeing and communicating with the other peafowl, and there was never any evidence of bad feelings. As soon as I let her out, Sweetpea started chasing Snap all over the barn. I finally cornered Sweetpea in a pen, and she's in there, normally I wouldn't do that, but I want to give Snap at least a chance to adapt to being in the barn with the other birds, and getting used to it, before she has to deal with Sweetpea. I was surprised and disappointed, but I wonder if the bigger age difference has something to do with it? Our two peacocks are totally ignoring Snap. They are both 4 years old. Snap doesn't seem too concerned right now, she's preening, but I worry about her, I don't want Sweetpea harassing her. Should I let Sweetpea out so they can duke it out, or should I keep her in the pen for a few hours, or will separating them make things worse?
