I'm thinking of getting some peafowl and I want to be able to make an informed decision about doing it. I am looking for some answers to the following questions: 1. Can they be raised with or near chickens? I have a flock of chickens and they free range about twice a week. 2. Can they free range all the time? 3. What sort of shelter/coop should I have for them? 4. If I decide to hatch them from eggs, can I set them under a broody silkie? (I'm only looking to raise a few) 5. How many should I have to keep them happy? Should I get a pair (male and female?) or does a peacock need a harem to keep him happy? 6. Have I lost my mind? I already have twenty seven chickens! I appreciate any and all insight, if you have tips or information I'll gladly read it. I want to know all that I can before I jump into this.
