In the Brooder
- May 15, 2014
Hello, We have four peafowl, A mature four year old pair, a two year old male and a 7 month old. Two years ago we tried to free range our older birds we had 4. Two of the females disapeared we were able to recapute one male and female and repen them. We were thinking about free rangeing again but clipping their wings this time to stop them for flying from our property. We live on a 90 acre property , about 50 acres of this is woodland, but that did not seem to satisfy the birds. Luckly we live an a small community of 200 in Northern Ontario, and the neigbours did not mind having the birds walking around. Will clipping their wings keep them here or will they still walk away? We are considering building a large covered avery of about 1 acre in one of our fields instead of free rangeing, any commets or suggestions would be welcome.
