Resplendent visitor

A beautiful young peacock appeared on the farm one day early in the month. He seemed to be making the farm his new home, which for a while was fun and without problems. The kids really enjoyed calling to him because he would call right back, and he made great yard art. His earnest displays for the totally uninterested chickens were hilarious. Unfortunately the jilted lover started to get aggressive towards the hens so we had to find him a new home. Chris was able to catch him when he broke into a pen that housed the mama hen and her chicks. The kids were thrilled to get to see him close up.
