A New Home for My Peafowl

My flock of peafowl is growing and thriving.

As many of you know, I have grown quite fond of peafowl. I now have five adults - two peacocks and three peahens, plus several peachicks I hatched in a specially made incubator.

Recently, I decided it was time to build a more suitable coop for the flock - one that was large enough to accommodate all the peafowl, and one that would coordinate well with the other outbuildings at the farm. The new coop is located in the same paddock as the original structure, not far from my stable, where we can all see the males when they display their stunning covert tail feathers. My carpenter, John, built the coop with his assistant, Oscar - it is so beautiful. Here are some photos from the first phase of the building process. Enjoy.
