Farm day was great yesterday! I should have walked around to see all of the different booths set up this year, but I just couldn't leave the peafowl pens! So many beautiful peafowl! I saw @AugeredIn there. I was walking down the green peafowl pen row and he was walking down there too so we hung out looking at all the peafowl and talking about peafowl. It was great seeing him there! --------- Hey AugeredIn, after you left, I found a volunteer and asked him where Josh was. He called Josh on the phone and told me that Josh would be at a little barn for firewood and meet me there. I didn't talk to him long since he was really busy, but he told me that he does have some American Greens still left for sale. He said he only got maybe 2 greens out of the imports. I told him you wanted to talk to him but you had already left so I hope he got up with you are is going to get up with you. --------- Farm Day is a big, several hour long event held at the Rocking BAB Ranch here in Florida. Here is their site: http://rockingbabranch.com/ There are many things to see and do at farm day, but if you are an animal lover, which you probably are if you are on BYC, you will really enjoy yourself. While Rocking BAB is known mainly for raising tons of peafowl and shipping them to all over the world, they also have camels, horses, chickens, mini donkeys, sheep, tortoises, a bunny, and probably more that I can't remember! Recently they have added several ring-tailed lemurs to their farm. Yesterday was a beautiful cloudless day and there was a large turnout. So without further ado, here are photos that I took at Farm Day: Here was a guy working with metal. It was a pretty cool setup and my parents went back to talk to him. I was back by the peafowl pens pretty much the whole time so I can't tell you what all the booths had, but it seemed like a lot more than last year. Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake! I think this was a booth by the Egland Air Force base. The even had a coral snake out there. Needless to say we didn't look at this booth for long. They were giving horse rides. The ranch mainly seemed to have paint horses. Of course, most of the photos I took were of the peafowl! I think Josh moved around some of the greens, so I was a little confused. AugeredIn and I both noticed some new adult breeder peafowl that we don't recall Josh having previously as well so that was exciting. Here are some green peafowl. I can't say for certain the exact subspecies on these, but these I think are American Greens - basically what I learned from AugeredIn, is that American Greens are pure greens, it is just Josh isn't sure what subspecies they are mixed with, so that is why he calls them American Greens. I think another term which resolution uses is Evergreens for green peafowl that are of mixed subspecies. This was a pretty green peacock. He was molting a lot of his crest feathers, but he was still striking. I think this hen was with the above male. Note her bright blue wing feathers. She wasn't even in bright sunlight and her wings were already glowing like that. @Dany12 - Hey Dany, here is the Spalding Pied from last year! I have more photos of him too. This was a new peacock we saw. I think it is a Spalding Silver Pied? Then that peacock to the right looks like a very high percent Spalding split to white or pied. More Spalding pieds. Another pretty green. This peacock might be an import. I say that because of all his colored leg bands. I think the imported greens usually have those colors on their leg. I don't want to overload one post with photos, so I might keep it to 10 photos per post. Don't worry there are many more photos to come! Please excuse some of the photo quality. The birds were moving a lot from all of the noise and people so I had trouble taking my time to get a good shot. Also, sometimes the photo would look good on the camera screen, then when I got home and put it on my computer, realized some of those good photos were actually blurry photos!
