Just when you think you’ve seen most things, I came home from work a week ago and found a couple of peacocks at our back door sitting in the sun. Seems our neighbor has these, for good luck, and they got out. After they were rounded up, I found that these birds may look beautiful, but they are a shi**ing machines!
This past weekend, once again, there was one in our yard. I thought, no big deal. I’ll just round it up, and get it back in their yard. It was a windy day, and the gate had swung open. As I’m “herding” this bird back to the gate, the wind blew and closed the gate. So I pushed it open to get the bird back, and while this is going on, the other peacock left the yard. So, now I’m chasing two of these birds, and the gate is swinging open and closed. Funny stuff.
I gave up, and just called our neighbor and let him know of the escape again. BTW, these birds are big and beautiful. But, after their looks, I really don’t know why any one would have them. Other than the mess, they also sound terrible.
