I've got two Peacocks and two Peahens.
Peacocks had just got the 'Eyes' in there tail feather this year.
Had them about a year.
Got the Peahens early last Fall. I was told they were about two at the time.
They've all been confined up till about three weeks ago.
I had been waiting to get eggs from the Peahens.
So far there hasn't been any.
I planned to be home for a while so I decided to let them out and see how they did.
The Peahens hung around the first couple of days then disappeared for a couple. Then came back. Then I might see one one day. then the next day maybe the other. But started seeing them less and less.
Now it's been ten days with out seeing them. I was about to give up. Then one appeared this morning.
Right now she is back in the pen. I'm wondering if maybe they started laying and have been setting on eggs somewhere?
I don't know if I should let her back out or not. My plan was for them to nest in the pen and get to the point were we have so many birds the loss of one or two wouldn't be such a big deal.
The Peacocks haven't been any problem. Other than one getting sweet with one of the local turkeys, they are staying around good.
Did see a big albino turkey hen hanging around too. First time I saw her I thought it was the ghost of one of my Peahens.
