Casportpony's 2016 Peafowl - 12-11-2016 - Lots of Pictures and Video

    Here are some pictures of my 2016 pea babies enjoying fresh shavings. The colors in these pens are India Blue's, India Blue Pieds, Whites, one Cameo, and one Purple. Also pictured are my Micro Roo (OEGB/MGB cross), and a hen we call SLFF (short legged fat freak). SLFF hatched several of these then raised them, and eventually adopted all of them as "hers".

    So cute! I have never seen peal fowl dust bathing -- that was really cool. Love how your bantam hangs out with them.
