We have been adopted by a very friendly peahen. I was hoping she would find her way home before winter, but she is still with us. I do not want her to be bitter cold this winter, but she seems to prefer roosting on my furniture on the screened porch now that it's cold (PA). She loves the back deck and she is of course, free range during the day. Does anyone know how large a platform with perch should be if she is simply there overnight? And how much room does she need? Temporarily, I was going to erect something at the corner of my back deck and screened porch under the very wide eave of the porch roof, since that's where she has set up quarters, but I do not want to turn the back deck into her "pen"...... her food is off in the yard, so that's not an issue. Next winter I can erect something more permanent, but for now???? Any advice? The only other option is to try to get her further into the back yard to the garden tractor shed, but that might also be too cold. Thanks for any help. I could post pics if it would help.
