I have had peacocks (males only) for a few years now and sadly lost my youngest to a fight last week. I want to learn as much as I can about animal care, health and risks, so that I can prevent and remedy as many problems as possible. I also care for 5 Rhode island reds and 3 plymouth rocks hens and would like to buy a new flock of birds that would provide more eggs for my family and neighbors in the future. I am learning about sustainable farming and want to use practices that benefit the animals as well as people. I like to experiment and am definitely willing to try new things. I have many hobbies and am notorious for overbooking myself and multitasking (with mixed results). Right now I am looking up things to grow (zone 4) to feed my peacocks through the winter so if anyone has suggestions, please let me know! Ideally, I would like to provide for the hens as well.
Hobbies: Baking+Cooking, Reading, Art, Building projects, Gardening, bird watching, old movies, identifying critters with the Seek app, casual sports, and raising fun animals (peacocks, butterflies, fish, horses, parrots, etc). I have always appreciated the knowledge available from those on this site and now just need to be more involved.
