    I am very interested in having a couple of peacocks , however , I always do alot of research before I raise an animal Im not familiar with.

    Any suggestions on where I could get a couple of eggs .?

    What type of incubator to have ?

    I live in extremely cold , windy climate so my chickens and ducks are in a 12x20 insulated coop.

    I was thinking of sectioning off an area for peacocks but I would like to know how they would get along with year old , established flocks. ?

    Thanks guys !

    Oh , and what type of feed do they need ?

    Thank you much for the valuable info !

    I would more than likely , house them seperate from the ducks and chickens.

    I am hoping for someone who sells eggs , will pop on in and let me know who you are so I can look further into raising these gorgeous birds !

    Thanks again.
