Mr. Peacock

I stopped by my friends’ farm the other day, the ShaBock Farm (usually a bed and breakfast but currently shut down for the virus).

One of my hens wanted to set, so I had to get her a couple of fertilized eggs from a flock with roosters.

As we visited in their yard, the ShaBock Farm peacock began strutting about.

I kept trying to get a photo of the peacock strutting his stuff, but every time I got close, he closed down his display.

I finally got close when he was displaying.

The farm peahens were not around. They were in the barn on their nests. This peacock was showing off for a chicken.

He’s a beauty but also a funny fellow.
