I bought my Daddy 3 peacocks for fathers day last year. I bought 2 india blues and a purple black shouldered spalding. My dad loves them and we own them because my dad thinks they are beautiful birds. At the moment they are in an aviary with my Lady Amherst Pheasants and have our grown the space. My dad wants to make another aviary for them but I think it is a better idea to let them roam free. We just have them as "lawn ornaments" and don't plan on breeding them. I know they will be much happier roaming free and I am confident they will stay on my land (5 acres). I was going to get special bands with serial numbers on them in case they wandered off (like ones parrots and pigeons have). I have known people who have let their peacocks roam free and they have never had problems. I know I will have to watch them during breeding season if I have a female among the trio so I don't get over run by peacocks. What are your thoughts on letting peacocks roam free? Here's some pictures of them I decided to include for the heck of it .
