    First off I should apologize for posting pictures here and not interacting with you all.

    I have to admit it's a little daunting coming to a BB and not knowing anyone.

    I'll make an effort to post more.[​IMG]


    On to the pictures but first a little background on Charmain the peahen. Last year Memorial weekend she just showed up out of the blue at our place and has never left. I think she was lonely, at the time I had two peacocks but no peahen, she must have sensed that she'd be welcome here.[​IMG] I called her Charmain the hussy for a long time but I'm nicer to her now that she's shown me what a good mama she is. [​IMG]

    She had paid me back handsomely with these little peeps. I am enjoying the heck out of watching them grow and and learn to stay away from the horses hooves, the dogs and other scary things we have here.

    Pictures from this evening.


    Is that a falling star I captured?


    Thanks for looking!

    I don't think I've ever seen anyone complain about people posting pictures on this board. In fact I think the "warning pic heavy" that people put in the subject lines is funny, it just helps me find the pictures faster. [​IMG]

    These pictures are amazing! So pretty and sweet! It does look like a falling star to!!!

    What absolutely beautiful photos of such a blessed mama and her babies. I've never seen such a gorgeous photo of a mama peahen and her babies.

    Gets me excited. I've wanted peacocks all my life. Just ordered some that should be here tomorrow or next day. Can't wait.
