The Arrival Of The Peafowl...

Our Peafowl have just arrived and they are stunning. We have 1 peahen and 2 peacocks. They are only 12 weeks old, which is a good age to get them because they are large enough not to be vulnerable to small animals and larger birds, but young enough to tame / train.

They will now stay in their enclosure for several weeks until they have developed a homing sense to the park, and then we can start to let them free range a little.

We will need to build them a proper roost once they start to free range, to encourage them to stay where we want them too over night instead of in our neighbours' trees or our roof!

  1. I look forward to hearing all about your experience's with your peafowl.
    I have wanted to get some for years; but everyone I know has experienced losses; except for the ones that are never outside their enclosure.
    Things are looking wonderful at Willowbrook Park!
