Hello All! I am planning on getting some peafowl next month. I want to put them into an old chicken coop that is connected to a newer chicken coop. The two coops have a wall between them so I can separate my poultry from my peafowl. I also have separate runs for the peafowl and poultry. Now my question is that I have been hearing about the Blackhead disease and how it is highly contagious to peafowl and chickens may carry the disease but are not affected. I have heard some people say its ok to keep peafowl and poultry together if I continually worm them every three months and then I have heard some say "no no no no no no no." Can anyone confirm? My nineteen chickens are very clean and I keep very good care for them. (I spoil them) So would It be safe to keep the peafowl near the chickens yet also seperated by a fence? The place where I want to keep my peafowl has a run that was previously used for chickens for a long time. Since the black head disease is found in the dirt, can I use a dewormer powder and grind it into the dirt to get rid of the disease? (if there even is any at all in my flock) Will Cayenne prevent blackhead disease if I use it on my flock? Also since the coop was previously used for chickens, what can I use to completely desensitize for the prevention of any other issues? Is there anything else about keeping poultry and peafowl near each other that I should know? These peafowl are costly and I would be very sad to loose them to any disease. I am planning on build a separate coop for the peafowl durning the summer so i can avoid any problems, but for now all I have room for is in the old chicken coop and separate run. Anyone got any ideas? :-D thank you in advance. Cheers!
