    I purchased my first pair of peacocks earlier this year. My fiance has been talking about them non stop since we met; and I figured it would be a good surprise anniversary gift for him, and it was!

    I purchased an India Blue Pied pair-- i have to say while they aren't friendly birds, they are by far the most entertaining to watch. They are housed with our 5 mallard ducks- and it's funny to see the 3 month old mallards ruling the pen!

    A few times a week they get an early morning visit(430-5am) from a deer (I'm thinking most likely the same deer ), and the deer stands snorting and pawing the ground behind the fence, and the pea's stand pressed to the fence squawking and pecking the deer.

    I'll have to grab updated pictures of Erohs' and Jade tomorrow [​IMG].
