Some folks we know have six peacocks that are cooped up in a 20x15 shed with a 10x10 outdoor cage. This is wayyyyy too small for the peacocks and they have no business having them. They are willing to give me the birds since we have the space for them, but I don't know how well that would work. My idea is to free range them and eat their eggs since there are two females, plus we just love peacocks. My only concern is being able to get them to return to the coop at night. I've read about how to do this with guinea hens and chickens, but I don't know how well that would work for three year old adult peacocks used to living in a tiny shed. I desperately want to help these birds, but I would hate for them to never return to their coop and get hit by cars, eaten by predators, freeze to death, etc. Another concern I have is with cleanliness/dirtiness of the birds. I have a compromised immune system and peacocks can harbor dangerous antibiotic resistant bacteria. My thought is that by letting the birds free range I won't come into contact with their waste as often and the risk will be mitigated. I still have my Army pro mask, respirators, and medical type masks along with additional hazardous material type clothing. Thank you for any help you can offer!
