White Peafowl may be kept in an aviary system, but prefer a free-range environment. You will want to provide plenty of shrubbery and trees to act as a shelter during the winter months, while also keeping an area open for them to roam.


These birds do well with standard game bird feed but prefer a diet consisting of seeds, grains, plants, insects, berries, and small reptiles. You will also want to provide a supply of fresh water.
