    it is a male she said he is 2 years old. wlil he be ok by him self in the chicken pen or do i need to find him a friend?

    my pheasent pen will be done this weekend and is much bigger will he be ok with the baby pheasents 5 weeks old tomarrow. will he be happier in there?

    she had a dog atack and this and 5 chickens is all that lived so she gave up and gave them to me.

    any help would be great. this is my first (hope not my last) Peacock!!!

    i know absolutly nothing about peafowl, but he's so pretty! my guess is that if the chickens are okay with him and if he's okay with the chickens he should be fine in there.
