In addition to being able to lay precious eggs, peacocks can be quite useful in agriculture. Once a farming season, peacocks can be released to graze on any of your land that is ready to be planted. This option is only available for Common, Red, and Royal Peacocks. The grazing process in one field takes two days. While grazing, peacocks feed on bugs, worms, and the like, killing pests and fertilizing the soil. Read more
If a peacock is for sale at the Fair, it cannot be put to pasture, and vice versa, if a peacock is already grazing in a field, it cannot be put to sale at the Fair.
The benefits of grazing
How you can benefit from grazing:
- Peacocks in the field do not eat bread from the feeder. They feed on wild foods.
- The grazing process provides a yield increase of up to 10% on a selected plot of land as a result of natural fertilization of the land.
- During grazing, peacocks continue to produce as usual - laying simple and precious eggs.
- Every 2 days a peacock spends in the field extends its life by 1 day.
A peacock grazing in a field can be dragged away by a dragon. However, the probability of this event occurring is quite small. Peacocks have abilities that help defend themselves against predators. Of course, the more expensive the breed, the more developed such abilities are and the lower the likelihood of abduction.

Number of peacocks in the field
You can send one or more peacocks of different breeds to each plot at the same time, but so that their total value does not exceed 7 gold coins per face value. By properly calculating the number of your fields and the number of peacocks, as well as making the right grazing schedule, you can avoid feeding the peacocks with bread at all and continue to get produce from them!
