The other day (jan 10th to be exact) four peafowl showed up on my back deck. Now I live in a very residential neighborhood, and while I wasn't the least bit shocked they chose our yard (stray animals always seem to end up here) I was shocked that they are peafowl. I have never seen any around here before, and despite ruthless searching for their owners, they have seemed to settle themselves in. Now I traveled to our local feed store and grabbed "game bird" food and. Cedar shavings (I acually use this for our outdoor cats, repells fleas beautifully). My question is, is there anything more I should be doing? I have grown quite attached to them. Also, how can I tell if I have a male? When they first showed up I thought it was a mama and three babies. But the more I research, and the more time I spend around them, I'm starting to think the scenario may be a male and his harem. Thank you for the help! Left to Right: Aretha (Franklin) possible male? Etta (James), Ella (Fitzgerald), and in the back is Billy (Holiday). Can you tell I like jazz?
