Introduction to Peafowl

Peafowl come from India. Male peafowl are peacocks. Most people recognize peacocks for their massive tail displays. Female peafowl are peahens. Baby peafowl are peachicks. Peafowl are one of the most beautiful species of birds. They come in many different colors now. Peafowl are also one of the more expensive birds, running about $100 to $200 each.

On 9/9/09, my mother called me at work to say that there was a peacock on our land. She named him Fifi. He had molted so he could not fly. We tried to herd him in to a cage with no luck. He then left. Here are some photos that my mother took. He was never seen again.

Joyce sent these four photos of her wild turkeys and their run on 5/21/06. The pen is 75' x 12' in size and contains two adult male wild turkeys, two adult female wild turkeys, an adult peacock, and the offspring of the wild turkeys (five eggs hatched via natural incubation on 5/21/06). There seem to be some white birds in there too? The photos are a little blurry.

I took these photos of peacocks at Land of the Little Horses on 7/29/07. Unfortunately, the first two are through fencing. For the last one, I stuck the camera through the fence and got a good photo. The female is not a standard peacock. She may be the green variety or something. I think the male is not standard either. If you know, please contact me so I can update it here.

On 9/16/07, Susan in Canada sent these photos of her baby male turkey poult that was hatched by a peahen. She said, "Last year a peahen flew onto my 5 acre property and gradually adopted my horses, dogs, cats, chickens and myself. We were honoured. After conveying the message that she seriously wanted to sit her two infertile eggs, I contacted a neighbor who is a major birder and caretaker of many large fowl. Two fertilized turkey eggs and exactly 28 days later, two lovely chicks emerged. One thrived, the other withered and died on Day 5." Here are just the photos that also show the peahen (all the photos are on my turkey photo page).
