Whether you have a big backyard and want some colorful birds or your reason for wanting peacocks is more practical, raising them by yourself can be somewhat challenging.
Getting their diet right is critical, as is controlling the environment temperature until their feathers are large enough to give them proper insulation.
Preparation is, no surprise, your most important concern. A good setup will lower the risk of injury or death, and you’ll find yourself scrambling a lot less once the peachicks hatch or you acquire them.
Getting Ready for Peacock Brooding
In many cases, deaths are attributed to sickness and disease. Some peachicks won’t make it no matter what you do, but others die because of brooding conditions, which is something you can certainly control.
Avoiding Sickness in the Brooding Phase
Raising baby peacocks isn’t like raising a puppy or a calf. You’ll be amazed at how rapidly they go from a ball of fluff to a bird that can fly.
