    My peacocks and the wild peacocks are talking to each other allot. They scream at each other, I have the better male so will the wild peahens come to him? The wild ones could already have a nest but incase they don't will they come?

    yep, peafowl are highly attracted to sounds of other peafowl. my confined birds get visitors from other flocks in the neighborhood.

    Yes, Other Peafowl will visit your peafowl, or if your peafowl are free range, they may even go visit those peafowl. Its a risk that they may never return.

    I know a lady who had 3 peahens show up for months. She could never find the owner. Asked around. Nothing. No one knew where they came from or who they belonged to. She finally caught them and has them now. She lives off a BUSY street and it was a high possiblity they were gonna get hit by a car.

    Ive heard peafowl in the distance from my house before... but not anymore.. .Dont know if what happened to that peafowl... It was a nice sound to hear from a distant. Mine are really well behave nicely and dont make tooo much noise.
