    All of my problems have been fox and Hawks neither are an issue with peacocks. I don't know about them dogs though. I would probably pen them if I were you. Not to mention I didn't buy this peacock it just showed up and stayed. Nobody nearby is missing him either. Wouldn't want them wandering off.

    I got one whitehackle I'm watching closely. I give him 2 more weeks til he gets separated. That would put him at about a month too.

    Oh man I just moved that one whitehackle and put him in the other brooder with 4 others that are a few days older. They ain't messing with him but now he won't shut up. Enough to wake the dead.
