    Here they are, I was able to get them today [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Well I thought that the White-Eye I was getting was an IB White-Eye but it is actually a Midnight White-Eye which I am so happy about [​IMG] He is 2 years old and has a 2ft long train isn't that big for 2yrs but I ain't complaing [​IMG]
    Then I got a White peahen she is BEAUTIFUL, [​IMG] she has the prettiest BLUE eyes I have ever seen. [​IMG] They are so tame I can't PET both of them they won't eat out of my hand but will let me pet them as long I want.
    Well now time for the pics....
    Here they are, they didn't come out of the box until my crazy rooster came up a tryed to fight them, then my dog came and they flew up the male got his foot stuck in the netting. I had to cut my netting, then I had to zip tie the netting up.

    Here they are looking around because the wild peacocks are calling like crazy, but they aren't calling back so they must not have interest.

    Here you can see my son petting the female they are so tame

    Here they are with my son they seem to like that shelter, hopefully nothing gets them at night or that would be $125 waiste of money, could I possibly make them fly to the 8ft high roost because it is dark now and I am so WORRIED

    And here they are just chillin, I gave them some cat food and scrath, until I have a chance to buy some game bird food. Also I don't know if you can see it but that brown clump on my white hen is pooh, she laid on some on the way hoome, but it DIDN"T STINK.

    Look good! I hope they don't get away this time. Remember, that zip tie will be a weak spot because the sun will dry rot it. You should tie that spot or use a hog ring or something like that to fix it.

    They're beautiful! Congratulations!
    Mine love any kind of pasta for treats & will eat it out of my hand. I usually cook pasta spirals or egg noodles for them.
