    I have a peacock that's old. (around 14-15 yrs.) He's always been fed what we feed our chickens. I'm just wondering what you usually feed your peafowl.

    My Peacocks get layer pellets during the winter months, when I start seeing his back feathers filling in I switch to breeder pellets which has higher protein and also treat them with some cat food for more protein. I continue them on breeder pellets through the breeding season with fruit and veggie scraps from the garden, they especially like grapes and berries. Hope this helps
