Peacocks

What most breeders won't tell you when raising or getting new Peafowl

Peacocks are very territorial over their home as a rule. When purchasing an adult Peacock, they must have a pen to go into when they first arrive at their new home. If they do not, the chances of them leaving as soon as released is highly possible as they will usually try to come back to their old home. For them to learn that they have a new home, they should stay penned for at least 4 to 6 months after arriving at their new home.


If and when you decide to release them from their pen, there is no guarantee they will stay. A peacock can hear another peacock 7 miles away. If you want to ensure they stay around, it may be the best to leave them penned.

I have received messages from people heart broken because they didn't follow my guidelines and they lost their peacocks.


If you decide to release them, you may want to re- pen them for your hens own safety and to better ensure your male stays around during breeding season. Females will go and hide to sit on her eggs which makes her very vulnerable to predators and the male may leave looking for another mate while his mate is nesting. Once breeding season is done, that would be the best time to release them to run free on your property if you desire but continue to feed them inside their pen so that if you need to medicate or ever treat an injury as well as the safety factors for future breeding seasons they can be locked up again and not be overly stressed about it.


The minimum pen requirement for a pair of pea fowl would be 200 square feet with the pens being a minimum of 8 feet tall and a minimum of 8 feet wide. Remember, your males train, when spread open can reach 8 feet or more in width. If they have a narrow pen, his feathers will get destroyed by constantly rubbing on the edges of their pen. They also require a minimum of 4" wide , 6" is best, perches to roost on so they can curl their toes under them when roosting so that their toes do not get cold or freeze when the weather turns cooler.


BABIES : From newly hatched to approximately 4 months old the babies are fed Purina Game Bird Starter and Medicated Chick and Grow with Amp. combined. A new born chick should not be on the ground until they are at least 4 months old. Peachicks immune systems are very fragile and the mortality rate can be quite high if the proper precautions are not taken during this stage of growth.


Feeding peafowl : They require game bird feed as well as cat food in their food for the added protein. Chicken feed does not have the proper nutrition they require. NEVER FEED YOUR BIRDS ANY BIRDS grass clippings. The reason behind this the grass in a clipping is too long for them to fully swallow. They have been known to get stuck in their throats as they ball or bunch up without fully going down and the bird ends up choking and eventually dying a horrible death. If you want them to have grass, plant some in a pot and rotate it as they eat it down. By doing this, they will bite off the amount they can actually swallow without any damage being done.


Peacocks love grapes, bananas, mealworms, tomatoes, pumpkin, watermellon, squash, cucumber, collard greens, berries, apples, small pieces of bread for examples.... Try different things to see what they like. It may take a few times of trying them but all it takes is one to try and the others will want some too. MAKE SURE you cut anything you feed into small enough pieces though so they do not choke on it.
