Your write the text,contact info,and send the pics,,and I'll ad them,,hows that? That goes for anyone here. I'm not too political to help other pea lovers out here.There is a BLOG too that can be used for anything,,I'm not nearly half done with it and keep thinking of more things I want to add. Some nites I build 2 pages,,,It goes that fast. And the mettagging,,,just wait how high it will come up on internet searches!!

    FBC how do you keep snakes out of your pens? Or, do you boy have a problem with them eating your eggs?

    Just read through FBC's pea palace thread... Glad I did because one thing I did not think about was my coop size and a cock's train... So, peacocks are on hold until I can get a better home for them.

    So for now I will drool over all of yours!

    Today I bring you a story. This is the story of three peacocks vying for the attention of a beautiful Damsel.
    One is but a young peacock, hardly two, but do not let that fool you for he thinks he is 22. The second is Frosty who is not very lively. The third in all his magnificence is the eldest, Alto, who is anything but mellow.
    [​IMG]

    Frosty is occupied with preening his white train, with which he never displays.

    But all too soon Frosty listed off to sleep.

    [​IMG]

    Smarty stared as Frosty was there. He didn't dare move a hare until he could bet that Frosty wasn't a threat.
    [​IMG]

    The fair Damsel appeared and they switched gears to woo her with their wit and charming good looks.
    [​IMG]

    Round and round they went looking for a returning glance from Damsel's lovely gaze which put them in a daze.
    [​IMG]
    "Hey Dad" Smarty said, "I look just as good as you do!" But we all know that is not true. Sorry boy but you are not as old as you assume for you hardly have any long plumes.
    [​IMG]
    Smarty was not swayed by his father's big train. He made a chase for Damsel who quickly drove him away for not only was he young, but he was her son!
    [​IMG]
    Damsel looked at Alto and she could se no faults and she found favor in his behavior.
    [​IMG]
    All the boys were sad because the prettiest peahen was now taken. Well, except for Peep who still likes my feet...

    ----------------------------------------
    These were photos from today. Smarty thinks he is a mature peacock. He calls the most, he displays and tries to mate, and he chases Frosty around. I could tell Alto really likes Damsel because he displays harder for her than for the other girls. You can tell he really likes her. I would have liked Frosty to mate with Damsel, but he never displays and in a pen full of colorful peacocks I doubt a peahen would pick the white one. here are some extra photos:

    I forgot to use this one in the story.
