Confused All but one of my breeding age peacocks have shed their breeding
plumage and I was hoping that the breeding season was over.
But then I saw Everest mate with Kid (white spaldings).
Because Kid bonded with her keeper (me) back when I cared for
her when she nearly died of capillary worms while she was not
quite grown this poor mixed up peahen will do a mating crouch
for her keeper ignoring my plea to "stop that" Embarassed
Anyhow some of her eggs have managed to hatch. Everest is the
one that is last to drop train.
But in a back pen I noticed that I could not see a peahen named
Malice and after looking around the pen I saw her sitting on the
ground under a rain shelter. A moment later her four year old
daughter attacked her and she stood up revealing three eggs Rolling Eyes
Just when I was hoping to be done with having extra things to do gaah
But those eggs may be infertile. The peacock in that pen has molted.
Must candle those eggs in a week or so. Am not certain when Malice
began incubation. If the eggs are fertile I will need to remove her
mean daughter and the peacock, too. But if they are not fertile
I will feel a sense of relief
