The Peachicks are Growing

7 Aug

Both little peachicks are still here and doing well.

Momma peahen takes very good care of them.

They drive her (and me) a bit crazy though.  Can you see the gap along the back fence?  They sneak out and eat green stuff with the goats.

So far they’re doing okay, but it is dangerous out there with the hawks (and cats).  Occasionally, they get a bit far from the pen, and then I send them back to their mom.

They are already good little fliers.

The other night they both made it on a six-foot roost.  I was very impressed!
