I have a 15mth old peacock, I've had him for 3 mths. He lives in a big chicken coop. Until 2 weeks ago I would let the 3 chickens and 1 rooster free roam during the day, and lock them up at night, but a fox took a chicken 2 weeks ago. The rooster use to like to stay in the coop with the peacock. 3 days ago the rooster started hiding his head. Yesterday I saw the peacock attack the rooster by standing on him. He's a small placid rooster. Any idea of why the peacock is now attacking the rooster ? When do you think I should allow the peacock to free roam during the day, I worry he'll run away ? I'm going to let the chickens free roam again on the weekend. Appreciate your advice.
