    new to Peafowl - currently have a pair of whites (2 1/2 yrs old) - adopted 2 silkie roosters. If I put the silkies with the pair of Whites can or will this stop the white peafowl from breeding?

    It is not recommended to keep peafowl in with chickens because of diseases chickens can give to peafowl, some people keep them in the same pen, but I have seen several people have problems with keeping chickens in with peafowl down the road like a peafowl dying because of it. Just a warning. [​IMG]

    we have 1 male peacock, 1 female guinea hen, and 45 chickens housed toghter. no problems with our peacock. the guinea and peacock bonded togther we show them in 4h and they had to build us a pen because if the peacock and guinea are seperated they scream back and forth...the people got sick of listening to it for 5 days so they built us a pen to place them in every year
