I have three peafowl that are about 1.5 yrs old. Two males and a female. I've been meaning to put them into the greenhouse where I was going to house them for the winter before the temps got to extreme but in the mean time I purchased 6 new peafowl (1 adult male and 1 adult female) so I quarantened them in the greenhouse. It has been a few months now and no problems so I wanted to put the original three in with the new ones. But now we are getting freezing temps as low as zero at night at times and it will only get colder. My question is. Can I put them out with the group now or do I have to wait until spring. Right now they are housed in a huge pen in the basement but I could really use that pen for other birds in my breeding program. I'd say the basement is in the high 50's or low 60's. I would put a few heat lamps out in the greenhouse if that would make the transition go better. Do they actually develop a winter down that I have read that chickens get or is that just hearsay ?? Thanks for your input !! Happy Holidays !!
