I have had peacocks for about 2 years. I started with 2 males and one female with 3 chicks and I bought another chick. I free range them all. Last year one of the males vanished without a trace. The other male has been the king of the flock. The chick I bought turned out to be male. He is now about 18 months old. Today is day 3 that the original male and his original mate have been gone. Are these birds territorial to the point that maybe he took his girl and left due to the other peacocks(i young male and 3 females)? He strutted all spring and summer and has never left. I have searched for feathers and there is no sign of anything taking place. So maybe he decided it was time to take his wife and leave for greener pastures? I got up at daylight and listened for his morning crowing, but all I got was silence. Opinions?
