I have a 4 month old peacock that my Vet gave me. He has been housed with my chickens and we are thinking about letting him out to live with the goats. He will be able to free range and then come inside to roost and eat. Now having worked all that out.....does he NEED a mate? I had not planned to have peacocks and am not sure if I want to breed them, but want to think of his best interest.
