Country Living

3 Mar

I would have to admit we really don’t live too far “out in the country”, at least like some of you do. But we do live out far enough that you can see sights like this at our local country store.

This is a peacock that belongs to the house just behind the store, not something you see at the local convenience store in town. If you look at the feet of the peacock you will see a pile of dry cat food. There is an old, sorry, mangy, wormy, scruffy, beat-up, worn-out old tomcat that hangs out around the store. I like cats, but this old tom is one sorry-looking excuse for a cat, he has definitely seen better days! I want to have a peacock at our homestead someday, but Sweet Thing says no. Do any of you have peacocks, and are they a lot of trouble compared to chickens or turkeys?

    Our uncle has one, once we get a bigger yard I decided I want one too!

    If you get one be prepared to wear earplugs and work hard to keep anyone who lives within half a mile from trying to shoot to shut it up. They can be a trifle loud! LMHO

      Yes they are! You can watch the old Johnny Weismiller Tarzan movies and you can hear the sound of peacocks set as jungle background noise. I guess the director of the movie liked the call of the peacock as well.
