Mine are doing the same thing and I dread another breeding season. I have free range peafowl I have to protect from predators so find myself hunting for nests constantly. The peahens will lay 2 five acre tracts over. I'm thinking about penning them this year but need more pens, LOL!!! So difficult to find good homes for the chicks so thinking I don't want to bring many into the world but hate to see my peahen continue to lay for 5 months....maybe hard on their health. If they incubate to hatch then raise chicks they're finished for the season. HA, that means more pens to keep mom and chicks safe from raccoons, etc; If I take the chicks from her she starts laying eggs again. It's insane. I want to have my girls spayed, hahaha!!!! I have penned birds .... to many males that will be fighting so need to let some out but then the alpha will run off the younger males and someone else will have peafowl. It's just all plum nuts!!!!! If I don't get my act together I'm soon to air on "Animal Hoarders". Heeeeeeeeeelp!!!!
This is a normal thing and you will see it from time to time even in the winter months. Note it is not nearly as frequent or frenzied as in the spring. Just practicing for the time to come. Even the females will strut from time to time so this is not unusual either.
Quote:Ya know i build big brush piles in the safe zone here for my birds to lay eggs in and the guineas,geese, ducks and chickens use them , i am hopping the peahens will also.
Just a thought, don't know ifyou are able to do that at your place but it is worth a try if ya can.
