    I have a peahen who showed up at my home a year ago (almost to the day). We bought a peacock about a month after she stayed here. They have been inseparable up until today. My neighbor a mile down the road said she was there and sent me pictures of her. No one around us has peafowl. He is still sitting on our back porch screaming every breath. He's usually already roosted in their tree with her. He knows something isn't right. Will she come back? Is there anything I can do? Will he take off looking for her?

    Welcome to BYC!!! You have arrived finally. She could be looking for a nest but sometimes the male can get aggressive to their hens and she might of just needed a break, or worse your neighbor has cats or dogs that they feed outside, peas love dry dog/cat food and will travel a ways for it on a daily if available. If thats whats going on, you can ask your neighbors (if they are pea friendly that is) to feed their pets after dark. Thats what we do and it should fix it.[​IMG]
