    It is always cool when they are comfortable enough to fan when you are around! I used to race down to the pen with a camera and every time I got near the peacock would put his train down, now he will fan while I go in and change the water...progress:)

    it's funny you say that he will fan with debbie down at his coop but when someone else starts to go down there he stops.

    I could be wrong, but I think that for breeding purposes, a 1 1/2 year old is considered a 2 year old. When I got my pair in Oct 2008, they both fit in a cat carrier and had a lot of room to spare. Then when the hen started laying this year, I had a few of the eggs develop though only one made it to hatch. Some of the eggs were likely too old by the time I put them under a broody hen. So if your girl decides to lay any eggs, set them. Nothing to lose...
