    update- tHANK YOU ALL SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH.. GOT THEM!!!!!
    Went outside and said.. I have to get them.. prayed to the man above.. climbed up on the chair.. I took outside.. couldnt reach them.. tried to move.. and fell off the chair/ at the same time- I HEARD OHHHHHHHHHHH THE FLUTTER OF THE WINGS.. THE MALE TOOK OFF.. HIGH INTO THE SKY.. I could see him in the light of the night/ the other one female- didnt budge.. as I saw him soar.. I saw him head to the woods, and then vanish.. but then heard.. horrible.. smashing, and tree limbs breaking.. and that sound.. of something falling from the sky.. sooooooooooooooooooooooooo I ran, into the woods.. petrifyed at what might jump out at me.. then went real slow..and my flash light spotted him/ had blanket in hand.. and threw it on top of him, Got em.. infact... so docile, maybe he is hurt?, put him in the coop, went back and thought I cant reach her.. and then ran back in and read your post.. to reply to you all...

    Read the.. do you have a net??????? comment??? and I thought.. YES, I HAVE KOI FISH.. ran and got that.. reached across the top of the pen.. and placed flashlight other way, my peahen was busy looking at the light.. as I slammed the net down on her.. and boy did she.. try and take off.. flipped the netting over.. grabbed her and the net in a ball.. and ran into the coop..

    got her finally out of the tangled koi fish net..

    Went back outside and looked all over for the open net areas where they werent connected the right way.. and began, using zip ties..

    the other two are in the pen.. and the white one is perched on the smaller chicken coop just sitting on top of it.. and the big guy.. is doing his freak out and pacing thing as I am in there

    THANK YOU ALL SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!! I CANT THANK YOU ALL ENOUGH!!!!!! MY TEARS ARE NOW WIPED DRY BECAUSE OF ALL OF YOU!!

    Since it is dark they will likely roost there. Maybe you can snag them while they are sleeping, or get them back in, in the morning with food.

I cant believe this!!!! they must have found a weakend area.. and whammo jumped up.. trying to get to the 2x4's across the pen... which the pen was covered with that bird netting.. not the good stuff I just bought.. one is sitting on the branches inside, and another on the other branch.. but the male/and female- india blues are actually above the netting.. I had a flash light out.. and got real close.. and thought.. WHAT THE HECK??????????????????? OH MY GOISH

    This late in the day they likely will not leave. I really hope you can get them back in in the morning.

    I would get them while its night, wait until its really dark.
    Put a flashlight on one side of the pen so they think you are over there, and go to the other side where they are and snag them.
    We did that with our turkeys, and chickens, and guinea birds, when we had them it worked well.
    And I read somewhere that peacocks are REALLY BLIND at night. Idk if it is true or not [​IMG] but I wouldn't risk waiting until the day time.
