    So a lady was searching peacock breeders and came across my site, so she called me. She said that she had a white female peacock that has been hanging out around the neighborhood for about a week. No one knows where she came from or anything. So she called me to remove the bird.

    I get to her house... and its a nice house... like out of a dream, but that not the topic, any hoo, so I go to back yard and I quickly find the peahen. She was not to shy but still reserved. She was in a short tree and I managed to cather her within 2 mins...

    Upon Closer inspection, the peahen looks great, and in a better note, she is not a white peahen. Its been raining all day here so she was all wet and dirty, but to me, at least until she drys off, to me she looks like a "black Shoulder Cameo hen". She's almost all white, has brown on her neck, a few brown flight feathers, and very very very little brown on her back. Ill post pictures of her once the weater is better and shes dry. I gave her a de-wormer and an antibiotic... just to be safe.

    Quote:Last year in spring the police showed up telling me there was a small flock of peafowl running loose and if I wanted them..> i was all excited... We went to go see them... the the bugggers turned out to be mine... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    So needless to say, I pushed them home, and put them all in there own pens... They arent loose anymore. the only peafowl loose are 2 extra males I have.
