Hello, Peafowl people! Due to an e-mail I just got, I am giving myself a crash course in Beginning Pea! I currently have 11 chickens, 5 geese, and one (rather lonely) turkey. I just got an email forwarded to me from a neighbor of a neighbor who has had a white peahen (or so she says--as it's white, I know it could be a young peacock instead) show up stray at her home and hang out for the last several days. She's lived in the area many years, doesn't know of anyone nearby who keeps peafowl, has asked around, checked with the Humane Society, looked on Craigslist, and no one seems to have reported one missing. Anyway, she doesn't want to keep it. So I said I would go over and take a look tomorrow, if we could catch it then it could stay at our house. Maybe the owner can still be found. I know there is a white peafowl pair several miles away (five plus miles?) and I would have guessed their wings were clipped (they walk around the grounds of a vet clinic that also rescues exotic animals)--so probably this bird came from elsewhere, that's just the only ones I personally know of in the area. But I can check the local feed store, they may know someone. Anyway... any words of wisdom on catching this pea? I haven't seen it yet, as I say. The neighbor says it's been roosting on her roof. Don't know how flighty it is during the day, Are they somewhat like chickens, in that they're fairly catchable once they go to roost? Or is it just a fool's errand? Would a big net during the day be a better choice? I really don't want to be wrestling with a panicked peafowl on top of a roof. Right? Realistically, it's just going to fly away when we try to catch it and never be seen again, isn't it? Okay, stop chuckling at the newby. I'm going to try. If by some miracle we can catch it. I do have a secure room in the barn that it could be quarantined in. Game bird feed's not really available around here, but my turkey (and the other fowl) eat Flock Raiser plus cat food plus fruits and veggies, so it sounds like that would work. Advice on capture and anything else? Pleeeeaaase??? Thank you!!!
