I am not well versed in the world of pea fowl and would love a little insight from those more experienced. The ranch behind our home has peafowl I hear regularly. This time last year, they started showing up in my yard, usually in the morning, and left the second I opened the door. This lasted a month. Then they disappeared, and I never heard them again for several months. Then this year, I started hearing them again and sure enough-beginning of July, they have started to intermittently visit my yard. Questions.... There are usual 4-6, most males. I didn't realize they stay together, and assumed males were territorial? I assume they are young males as their tails are pretty short? This year we have chickens (when I opened the blinds to take this picture, all four of them were facing the chickens with their tails fanned). But last year we did not. Any idea why they would decide to visit the same time of year each year? I should note, I live on a cul/de-sac and the ranch runs the length of the street. I doubt they only come to my house. Do I need to be concerned about them being in the yard my chickens free-range in for reasons of communicable diseases, etc? They are also roosting on my roof (clay tile), I don't necessarily mind but any issues with potential damage?
