Our Peahen Princess goes broody twice a year. She hasn't figured out the key to hatching eggs, which is that you have to get cozy with the peacock... So when she goes broody, they never hatch, because we have never seen her breed with one of our cocks and don't think they've caught on to how to do it yet...Anyway, she stays on the eggs a long time, and keeps trying. This time she has totally disappeared. We can't find her anywhere. And tonight one of our two peacocks, Phoenix, has disappeared also. I saw him this afternoon and have gotten the impression for the past few days that our other hen and two cocks have been looking for Princess. (they all free range on our 20 acres) But this has never happened before (that two have disappeared) and we are extremely worried. Question is, would he stay the night with her if he found her outside? That has never happened before, that the cock stays with the hen, but before now she has always selected a place in the barn where it is safer, and eventually we find where she is. She has never gone broody outside before. . I am so worried someone might be taking potshots at our birds, We don't have a big problem with coyotes, so I don't think that's an issue.
