So when I went out to feed the peafowl after school, Ice, my dominant peahen, wouldn't come off the perch to eat. She didn't look sick or anything so I thought maybe she would come down later. Alto, my two year old peacock, flew up on the perch and lightly pecked at her. Ice stood up but wouldn't fly down. Later she flew down and Alto started chasing her all around the pen. It wasn't play he was really running and Ice didn't like it. She was really trying to get away from him and they would go around and around the bamboo and the tree in circles. Whenever Alto cornered Ice Alto would start kicking her. They were running so much that they started to pant even though today was cool with a light breeze and all shade. I got tired of all the chasing and tried to get in front of Alto but he was able to run by me after a minute of me swaying back and forth. Then I got out the hose and sprayed him. He kept running after Ice and didn't even flinch even though he got soaked. I can't believe that Dragon, my four year old male who is in the same pen, would let this happen to HIS girl. He was on the other side of the pen not even watching. Is this regular behavior? Is Alto just being rough? Do I have to worry about the possibility that Ice can't get food or water without being chased or will Alto stop? He wasn't after the two other peahens.
