    this afternoon i went to go out and work on the run i'm building for my pheasant... and i see the peacocks sitting under one of the lower palm trees.. they're the big ones that are pineapple looking.. and the branches touch the ground.... they like to hide in there...
    i have trimmed some of the branches back, but left some specifically because i know they peacocks like to hide there...

    well today i'm going back there .. and the peacocks are there and off to one side of them.. not quite laying with them, but close enough.. was one of my EE pullets... lol... cracked me up....

    just thought i'd share.. maybe someone esle will find it amusing...

    I have a muscovy drake that thinks he's a chicken. He roosts at night, ignores the duck hens and tries to breed with the chicken hens....Sometimes birds are a little strange.

    lol.. yeah.. it was cute.... most of the chickens are afraid of the peacocks....

    i'm wondering what will happen in hte spring when the boys start showing interest in their girls again... has anyone ever heard of a peacock chicken hybrid?? i know someone has a chicken / guinea? crossbreed.... or something unusual like that...

    guess we'll see..
