A Perch for My Peafowl

My flock of peafowl is growing and thriving here at my Bedford, New York farm. I now have two adult peacocks, three adult peahens, and several peachicks.

Peafowl can add an exotic element to any farm, but caring for them is a huge responsibility. It is very important to me that all my animals get the best of care. And for the birds, this includes a safe place to roost - they like to be up high to see what is around them and to escape from predators if needed.

All my outdoor birds have access to natural perches made from old felled trees here at the farm. Recently, I had one moved and "planted" near the new peafowl coop. Here are some photos.
