He's a white peacock named "Sebastian", he really is a good boy but right now it's peacock mating season. He's been putting the moves to my hen "Camilla" for awhile, and today I went out back after hearing a high pitched cry from the peacock, and he was on top of her, having at it. I chased him off with a boot to the arse, but since he and my girl are both free range (she's behind our cyclone fence, but he hops that at will), I'm sure he'll be back. So, two concerns: 1. can a peacock get a hen pregnant? 2. are there worries about him hurting her if he gets the chance to do this again? From what I'm reading of chicken anatomy, there doesn't seem to be anything "penetrative" about it, but beyond that I don't know the details, so I worry he might injure her. For what it's worth, Camilla is none the worse for wear.
