    I'm not sure what to do. Not sure what happened but my peahen won't come down from roof and it is snowy and in teens. Hasn't eaten in 2 days and no water. My peacock is calling her to come into the barn but she won't have it. She appears healthy! Is she trying to lay eggs?

    We see this every winter with guineas. Sometimes they come down by themselves and sometimes they die up there. They are afraid of the snow. If she were mine, I would get her off the roof, make sure she eats and drinks (warm water) and put her somewhere safe.

    They are going to be locked in indefinitely.
