    We hatched a peahen just over 1 year ago. Her parents' abandoned the eggs and so this lady put the free eggs on Craigslist. We took them because we had chicken eggs on the incubator already and so we just added them to the chicken eggs. There were 3 eggs and only 1 hatched. So we raised her indoors till she got old enough to put outdoors. She was raised with our chickens when they hatched so they are only a few days apart. Now she is just over 1 year old and she heards the ducks, geese, and guinnea hens around everyday for about 15 to 20 minutes. Than she just strolls around the yard. We are thinking about getting 3 peacocks and they are 3 years old. We were wondering if she would get along with them or if anybody could shed some light our way. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    She will go fine a long but you need only one male, more males will fight, and not sure if you could free range the new adult male, you need to read a lot about free ranging before letting him free, i don't have any experience with free ranging peacocks, all i know is free ranging adults is much harder than peachicks, adult peacocks usually will try to fly away searching for their old home.

    if you can get multiple birds they'd do better. Peafowl like company even though the males don't get along well.
