If you are considering getting a peacock, then the first thing that you need to know is how to house your peacock. Peacocks need shelter and protection from predators. Many factors will affect where and how you house your peacock, but they must have adequate living space for their needs. If not properly housed, peacocks can be killed or injured by predators such as dogs or cats!

Do peacocks need shelter?

Peacocks need shelter and protection from predators. There are many factors that will affect where and how you house your peacock, but they must have adequate living space for their needs.

How do you house peacocks?
Housing a peacock is a crucial part of owning such an animal. This is how you do it:

Firstly, you need to provide a house for your peacock. There are many different types of houses that can be used, so it is important to first consider what type will best suit the needs and preferences of both you and them?

Secondly, make sure they have enough room in their new home. A small or cramped area may result in stress levels which could lead to physical health issues such as plumage damage or increased aggression towards humans; this would not do! It’s also worth noting that if space permits, adding an outdoor garden with at least two acres of land (a large plot) will help increase their chances of survival should predators appear nearby.

Types of peacock houses

Roosting Platforms

These are platforms where peacocks can sleep, often designed to be accessed through a hole cut in the ceiling or from a ladder that is attached.


This type of house features sides made up of hoops and it will have doors that open so they may enter and exit at any time. It also has an open roof with a roosting platform on top for sleeping during the night.


It’s easy to install a peacock enclosure in your garden and they’ll love you for it! Not only will they get plenty of fresh air but you won’t have to worry about them escaping either.

Open Cage

A cage with an open door is perfect for peacocks who want to be able to come and go as they please, meaning you don’t have to worry too much about them escaping or flying away! Just make sure the enclosure has some shelter from the rain to keep your bird(s) healthy and dry


Peacocks are well known for their love of roosting high up so if you’re looking for somewhere useful that will allow your birds to stay safe while at ground level then consider building them a cottage where they can nestle on top of it all day long – just remember not put anything dangerous nearby like trees or poles!

Miniature Houses

These types of houses provide shelter without being too large or expensive; many people choose this option as it’s easy to clean out messes left by peacocks inside such tiny structures! The downside is that some could argue there is not enough space for them unless they are kept as caged birds.

Hanging Baskets

These types of houses are great for peacocks that have been hand-fed or don’t seem to enjoy being out on the ground too much; they can be hung from a tree, their window sill, or any other elevated surface which has enough space underneath it. They’re often made up of wicker so there is plenty of ventilation and airflow around them while keeping bugs away! The downside with this type of house is that it’s not always easy to clean under – especially if they make frequent messes such as having droppings fall through gaps in the bottom where people couldn’t reach otherwise.


A cage might seem like an obvious choice but many people do not realize that peacocks need to be able to see the sky and have plenty of space outside. It’s important when building a cage for them that they are large enough for your bird(s) to move around freely, exercise their wings, flap about, or otherwise get some fresh air without coming into contact with anything else like trees, poles, etc.


An aviary is perfect if you want an enclosed area that will keep out birds from other places but also offers lots of room for your peacock – this means it should either be raised off the ground by at least two feet or made up entirely of glass so nothing is blocking their view! They can usually fly inside meaning they don’t have as much of a need to flap about.

Can a peacock be kept at home?

A peacock can be housed in your apartment or house, but they need space to roam and stretch their wings. This means that you must have an area for them. It is also important to keep the peacocks away from cats and dogs as these animals are natural predators of this type of bird!

Can I keep a peacock in my garden?

This depends on where you live, whether it’s a rural or urban setting, what season (breeding time), if other pets will interact with the animal, etc. In many cases keeping a peafowl in your yard may not suffice because during breeding season males become highly territorial and aggressive so take care when making such a decision.

What are the factors that affect where and how I house my peacock?

The factors affecting what type of home for your peacocks will depend on their age, sex, breed (e.g., Indian Blue peafowl versus Malaysian Peacock), if they show quality or not, etc. For example: – A mature male peacock may need a larger space than a female because males become more aggressive during mating season;- If you have other pets in your home it is best to keep the birds away from them as cats and dogs can be natural predators for this type of bird!

Dangers faced by peacocks when they are not properly housed

The dangers of housing peacocks improperly are many. Depending on the lack of space, they may not get enough exercise which will lead to obesity and heart problems. They could also become aggressive because they’re in a confined space for too long or even depressed if that’s possible! Additionally, their feathers can fall out from being stuck in one place day after day with no stimulation (e.g., just sitting there). Peacock house plans include:
– Place your peacock houses where it is protected from predators like cats and dogs – you’ll want them away from windows as well;
– The peacock house should be high enough so the bird can stand up straight;
– The floor should be deep enough so that all four legs touch the ground at once when he stands up straight! If you have chicks, they need a floor that is about six inches deep;
– You must keep your home clean for both human safety reasons but also so that it’s comfortable for your peacock(s). This means cleaning up poop whenever needed – yes this includes right after he poops before it starts to dry and get smelly. Remember to wash/scoop up the poop daily, you don’t want dirty droppings all over your house
– Peacocks are attracted to shiny objects so when they’re in their habitat make sure not to leave any expensive items within reach (curtains, lamps) or have nearby open windows where peacocks can fly into them.
– Peacocks are social animals and will always be happiest when they’re around other creatures like themselves! They don’t do well alone so you should house at least two or three peacocks together since the male has to spend his time defending a territory from other males anyways, might as well have one there for company. The female is pretty happy living on her own; females can live in smaller habitats than males because their feathers offer plenty of protection from rain and sun.
– It needs to have a roof because birds are generally messy creatures – how do you think your walls will look after he’s been there for a while? Birds don’t always know when it’s time to go outside! And, if you’re wondering: yes, peacocks love grass and shrubs. They also eat seeds from fruits like apples or oranges but stop feeding them these foods since they may become overweight and suffer from heart disease as well. Peacock houses include many food dishes with different types of feeders (e.g., bowls, platforms) in order to provide the peacock with a variety of food.
