    okay. I can't do anything for another pen, since winter hit and the ground is frozen. But I have a few more peafowl. They are in a small pen. Which I hope to be moving in june (Maybe). But I will be buying a New pen before breeding season happens.

    I have a Male Peacock. He's a IB, 4 years old.

    I have Jill, the Peahen, you've seen before.

    I have Jill, the Peahen, you've seen before. I have 4 yearlings, IB as well, Two male and two Females. The one with her head down is Jill. She was a bit mad at me for adding more peafowl. Than a bit happier when Night came and they all cuddled with each other. She mothers them, which is really cool, My Jill a foster mom [​IMG]

    Woo I can't wait for the pictures! I hope you can raise some peachicks too. You need to update your signature because now you definitely have more than 2 peafowl.

    Aww that is sweet that she mothers them. When I got Pip she was young and Ice kind of mothered her and when I got Alto (he was also young) Ice picked on him, but when it came time to roost Ice would not settle down until she saw both Pip and Alto fly up for the night. It was interesting.

    Quote:Thanks, They are wonderful to look at. Jill is a wonderful Foster Mom, althought Lightfoot doesn't seem to like them, which Makes me want to make a bigger pen faster
