    He comes in everyday for grain. Nearly able to hand feed him. Kids love him. We'll be eating him next week LOL ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D. Not sure how long he'll stay around.

    That's cool how you got him so tame. Nice reference pic!
     
  4. Some of the birds they release around here are like that. I don't know if it is the birds the PGC is letting out or if people have released them on their own. I never tried to get close enough to hand feed one though, but almost caught some quail with just a hand net when I was younger.
    That is a beautiful bird, and good reference, I'd be trying to get as much reference as possible before he hit the table.

    OK, this may seem weird to some (people from warm weather states in particular) but the first thing I thought of when I saw that ditch peacock was "WOW, look at that green grass" We have lots of pheasants in South Dakota but we still have 8 ft of snow (Sick and tired of white)
     
  6. The daffodils are blooming too, lol. We don't have snow anymore, but the grass isn't greening up yet and the daffodils are only up about 2-3 inches. Knock on wood, snow isn't out of the question here yet, but I don't think we will be looking at 8 ft if we do get any.

    In answer the question of tameness, it just takes a little time and paitence. I have a Robin and Blackbird with a similar tameness. They really only want the food, certainly not the company, mine that is. He was around 8 inches from the camera, at the time of the shot.

    Hope is stays, but they tend not too, once the ladies are around and it is that time of year ;) ;) ;)
