    hi group,i have 8 peachicks,got them as day olds,and they are now a week and a half old,they grew so fast!!
    i am planning on dna sexing them when they get feathers.
    i live in a regular suburb,and want to keep to peacocks to roam around my yard and the neighbourhood.
    the others will go to a farm.
    i was told that,there maybe a little fighting in the breeding season,but i kept 7 peacocks in a huge avairy many years ago,and had no troubles
    these are all very tame,and will continue to interact on a daily basis.
    i keep hearing different reports.
    will these two tame peacocks stay in my area without peahens?
    from a site that said,that they will till they are mature,and then,no mater how tame,they will fiy off to find a mate?
    i cannot hve these birds breed,as i am pushing my luck even having these birds lol
    any input would be apreciated

    If there is no Peahen to fight over there shouldn't be any thing to fight about during breeding season. We have a male running loose and shows off to everything Dogs.Cats, Car bumpers, hubcaps [​IMG] he isn't to picky and he has been here for about 4 yrs.

    Does your 4 year male tend to call a lot during breading season with no females? Has he ever scratched at your car?
