    Thanks MaryT. He was following me around one evening while feeding and I happened to have the camera.

    I'd love to have one but I don't have enough land for that, wouldn't want to have him penned up, looks like he needs roaming room!!!

    We have 8 of them and they go wherever they please. They roost in a large tree and fly in the hen yard for feed. One hatches about 2-5 chicks every year. She should be setting any time now.

    How beautiful. We have always wanted peacocks, but I have heard they don't get along with chickens? Also, we have SO many predators...

    Thanks. The males of this type, Blue India have brown (red) on the ends of their wings. They and the chickens get along just fine. However the peacocks do fly in and out of the hen pen at leasure.

    I have 6 peafowl and they get along with my chickens,turkeys an emus aswell as all the rest of the farm:lol:
    They have a pen they go into at night and duing the day they roam the yard. Their wings are clipped to keep them from going to far,we only have 2 acres right now. They have always stayed put unless a frisky horse chases them out. When it starts getting dark they go back to the pen and wait to get fed.
