    If you zoom in on the first picture, you can see that under the metal roof are rafters, that result in about a 2 inch gap all the way around. I'm currently working on putting hard ware cloth on the rafters. This murderer got 1 peachick, 2 quail, and 1 cochin. Apparently, it hadn't eating in 7 years. I wouldn't be so mad if it was the quail or the cochins because I can replace them. Its very rare to find someone with peacocks.

    Thank you new 2 pfowl!

    That's so funny, I just saw the add on CL for the ones in wake, NC. but not the other. Even the list in FB is a good start, they aren't asking too bad of a price, plus I would MUCH rather raise ones that a full grown instead of having to wait 2 years for the chicks to mature. Thank you so much.
