Meet Barney

Thought you might like to see one of the pets we are currently looking after, he is called Barney a fine looking bird. Just a few random facts about Peacocks. The pretty ones with the fancy tails are the boys hence peacock girls are hens. When they go to bed at night they go up into trees to roost they don’t fall out when they sleep as their reflex action if they are going to fall is to hold on tight. They live to a good age between 40 and 50 years. The two we are looking after are very tame and will eat out of your hand if they want attention they tap the window.

    He looks amazing, never thought of a peacock as a pet! Didn’t realise they lived so long either.
