    What a sweetie!!! I'm raising one by itself that hatched Sept 13. It has 2 mirrors, a stuffed dog and a piece of sheepsking hide with the fur. I feel so guilty not spending enough time with it but it's in a 2 by 4 foot wired brooder on our closed in back porch so I visit it in short intervals often. How will you raise your?

    Once they get a little older those little fluffy feathers are everywhere, LOL!!! I have a 3 by 10 foot pen off the ground in 1 of the 10 by 30 foot pens it can go in where it will be with other peafowl. I figured I'd arrange something the older chicks can fly up onto so they can be next to this lone chick with only hardware clothe seperating them. I hate seeing it by itself but checked far and wide for someone local with chicks hatched around Sept 13 and found none. This isn't even a chick I'd keep but will be so bonded to it that will most likely change. Wish I had some really enthused peafowl owners like myself near me.
