    Hey fishlore, we got some more peacocks! We are now up to 4 males, 1 female, and one baby.

    2 boys have names, Percy(short for Percival) and French Fry(he likes French Fries)
    The baby has a few names that are up in the air. We are calling it baby for now because we don't know it's gender, if it's a male, his name will be Chewy. If it's a female it may be Prissy. Wiley is also an option.
    The female and two of the males don't have names yet(although we've taken to calling the female Mamma since the baby is hers)
    We are supposed to get one more male(the alpha). He got smart and won't go near people so they can't catch him.
    There was another female, but she ran off and we haven't seen her in over a month.
    We are getting the peacocks from a friend who just bought a barn. Her dogs will kill the peacocks so she offered to give them to us. They've been slowly catching them for a few months now. They actually caught two males while we were vacation, so we weren't expecting the two other males.
    Pictures tomorrow. I didn't want to disturb the momma and baby anymore today, so I didn't take any pictures.

    Thanks guys:) once I take a shower I'll go get some pics. Were fencing off another stall today(baby can for through the bars and the top is open) because the boys are picking on it. We put the baby in a cage for the night so it didn't get killed.

    The baby
    The other unnamed male. This one has different wing feathers than the others.

    The males lose their tails in summer, its completely normal. We have a huge bundle of tail feathers.

    Thanks BTWB:) we're running out to get some mealworms for baby soon. It should enjoy them.

    We have decided to start breeding mealworms!(Baby loved them sooooooo much). We are trying crickets tomorrow(not going to breed them though).
    Anyways, baby and mommy have a new home! All credit goes towards the guys that came out and put it together though.




    They will be adding a perch for them tomorrow.
    The boys cage will also be getting a major upgrade tomorrow.
