My Curious and Social Peafowl

Here at my Bedford, New York farm, the peafowl are loving their newfound freedom.

Peafowl are very social birds - they usually travel in groups, enjoy exploring, and often play together, especially under the sunlight. They are also very loyal and tend to stay where they are well-fed and well-protected at night. I now have 17 of these magnificent birds. They live in a very safe and comfortable pen near my stable, where they get lots of attention from visiting friends. Recently, I started letting them out of their pen for a few hours during the day to roam and explore the property. And then just before sundown, they are led back to their coop for the night.
