Peafowl - Ken and Deirdre
Ken and Deirdre who came to us in May 2012 are Indian Blue Peafowl which originate in South Asia. The males are called peacocks, the females peahens and the offspring peachicks. The male is spectacularly coloured in the body with a long tail adorned with "eyes" which can be seen when he displays his tail in the upright position, the females are a much drabber brown colour.
The males make a distinctive, screeching call which is considered haunting and eerie!!
