I think my female peacock ran off with the wild tukey we raised. They both dissapeared three days ago without a feather left behind. Poor Toot the peacock is devastated...after all these years. how could she throw him over for a fast talking turkey?

What a bummer. After all you've been through trying to keep them on your property - they go off and elope on you.

Maybe it will turn out to be a one-night-stand, a brief interlude, a flight of fancy if you will.

We happened to think that maybe she has become seasonally confused and has a nest somewhere. The problem with a peacock nest is they are darn hard to find. The bird matches the color of dirt exactly. SHe'll be easier to find in a few weeks when it snows! Has anybody else ever heard of a peacock nesting this time of year? Toot just doesn't seem too bothered by the whole thing, that's what made us think maybe a nest. Otherwise, he would scream bloody murder if she left the yard. (He can wander the neighborhood, but not her!) I'll keep looking. In the meantime I have not yet sold the four young ones they hatched this spring and there is one female in that group.

I know, I know, such a union would be banned in at least 49 states, but hey, what can I do...
