    Would a single peahen be loud? I'd love to own a peahen. If I can't keep just a single pea, would two female be loud? Thank you!

    I was out working on a new pen today making a lot of racket and all the yearlings were yelling 'You-Hoo' the whole time.

    Poor peahen ... alone .... no one of her kind!
    A happy peahen is a bird that can raise her peachicks!

    The most common call you'll hear from peafowl free range or a lone is a locating call. They need some sort of friend. Peafowl, human, chicken, etc. My one rooster is noisier than the 7 of my peafowl combined. Breeding season is the noisiest but my rooster is still noisier. My peafowl are penned though.
