Hello and thanks, I do have to tell you though I don't really raise Peacocks because we only have 2 males. We did have a female but some critter thought she looked tasty. She did try a few times to hatch her eggs and did three times unfortunately only one of those made it, and I think that was mostly our fault for not being able to keep the raccoons away. The 2 males are very easy to keep we make sure they always have fresh water a shelter(we keep them contained but have been told they will stay around if we let them out) with warm bedding on the floor, a roost and bedded boxes on the wall much like something for a chicken to lay her eggs. Every morning and night we give them cracked corn and every now and then they get compost, mainly bread and goodies from the Day Old Hostess store. They are BEAUTIFUL birds and we are hoping to get a female or two in the near future. I don't want to mislead you I am not an expert ours are just pets but we have had the older male for 11 years and the younger male was hatched 3 years ago. Sorry for the life story I hope this helps, if you have any more questions I can try to help you.

Oh, I almost forgot, our peacocks do not like our chickens at all. They attack them and chase them away so we keep them separate.
