They should call them POOPCOCKS, not Peacocks!

    I went out to my car yesterday and it looked like a Rottweiler had taken a dump on the side of my car! (Yes, very visual!)

    The peafowl have decided that they like to perch on my Honda and the repercussions are huge piles of poop that do not look like it came out of a bird! Man! I really need to stop feeding these things.

    On another note... Does anyone want peafowl? I've got plenty and am willing to share!

    **Any ideas of how to dissuade a bird to perch anywhere it wants?

    [​IMG] No thanks, I used to have a beautiful pair but got rid of them within a year of having them.

    Here's some eye candy!

    very nice Eye Candy. However, I had plenty of eye candy of my own yesterday.

    I was rushing to pick up my son, who happens to get in the car on that particular side so I had to scrape it off.

    UGH!!! I swear I dry heaved for 5 minutes, and I'm not a really squeamish person.

    I like the sounds that they make. It reminds me of a damsel in distress with a weakened voice saying, "help...help".

    the hose wasn't hooked up and of course I was running late! so I just thought I could knock it off. WRONG!! That stuff was aweful!

    I had to scrub it off with a hard brush cause it was like cement smeared on the side of the car.
