    i am buying a pair of royal palm turkeys and a pair of peacocks. i have built a large pen and was planning on putting them in together. will this be ok? they should have plenty of room and not be overcrowded at all and the pen is covered. i want to free range them later but need to keep them up for a couple of months first. thanks

    Our pea's and turkeys share the same area and have had no problems, actually the pea's rule the roost.

    These were raised together, from the person I recieved them from.

    So I Left them together, but when spring came the Tom Turkey kill one of the peacocks, so I will not keep them together any more.

    Lat year we where given a BR hen that was living with peas and the peas had beat her up pretty bad, she still limps today, broke her foot. The owners said they where good till one day and the peas turned on her and beat her up more then one time and then she contacted us to give her to us where she could live with out the peas.
