I have a white peacock named Peachick who is 2 1/2 and I had tried introducing him and my younger peahen named Turkey (1 1/2) who live together to the older peahen Nellie who is about 5 in the past a few different times last year and they were always afraid of Nellie. She would bully them and they would want to go back to the other side. He did originally live on that side but there was another male in there (Allan) who died a year ago and he was frightened of Allan and that is why I moved him to the other side about 16 months ago. The coop is a 12x16 divided in two so each side is an 8x12 inside and about10x10 outside. These three are my only peafowl and they live with a few chickens. Well I tried again today and it was a totally different result. This time first they flapped wings at each other a little bit and then all of a sudden Peachick is trying to mate with Nellie. He never even bothered with the tail fanning or any of that. Nell flew up to the perch and he is trying to mate her on the perch pulling on the back of her head a lot. Wherever she went he went and she was getting frightened. Turkey flew up to a high point and he tried the same with her but she got away and then he seemed more interested in Nellie. Then Turkey just found a higher spot to stay out of it. I left them in there about an hour or two checking every 20 minutes and finally I had to put the 2 (him and Turkey) back in the other group they lived in on the other side of the coop which is divided since Nellie's back of her neck was getting all chewed up and a little bloody from Peachick pulling on it so much. I will take some pictures tomorrow. Does this mean he is just too rough for Nellie? Maybe that is why Turkey stays up on her perch most of the day but she doesn't seem as frightened of him as Nell is. Any thoughts or suggestions?
