My Curious Peafowl

Here at my Bedford, New York farm, my peafowl love to get out and explore.

Peafowl are very social birds - they usually travel in groups, enjoy foraging, and often play together. They are also very loyal and tend to stay where they are well-fed and well-protected. I currently have 16 of these magnificent birds. They live in a very safe and comfortable pen near my stable, where they get lots of attention from visitors. Yesterday, I let them out for a short while to roam the property - they walked around the stable, through the gardens, and even perched high on the rooftops. And then after a few hours, they were led back to their familiar enclosure, where I know they are safe and sound.
