Peacocks, anyone?

We have been invaded by two lovely, almost certainly abandoned, young peacocks. We are happy for them to live here as long as they like. They like bird seed, they roost in the trees, and like watching the TV through the windows. They don't like the organic high protein chicken feed I got from Country wide. Do any of you chicken people have any tips?

200 degrees for 90 minutes should do the trick

LOL

One of my neighbours suggested one for her freezer and one for mine.

Now we have called them "Peaky" and "Cocky" I don't think the eat your own pet routine will work

Will have to wait another coupla years I think, as neither has a proper train. But they both are practising their tail thing, and scared off some pesky pheasants and my cat this afternoon with their display.

Obviously most chickeneers roost go to bed quite early?

Peacocks are beautiful birds. But bloody noisy.
