    A Proud Peacock Mum

    Oops sorry - I mean pea hen!!

    These sweet babies hatched out at the beginning of the week. No one was actually sure where the mother pea hen had hidden the eggs, but it must have been somewhere safe. It is too soon to tell yet whether they are boy or girl chicks, but as they grow, only the boys will get the luminous blue colour and spectacular tail. Females stay short-tailed and brown so that they are better at hiding in the bushes with their eggs. Males use their amazing colours to show off to them! Here's a picture of dad.

    Best wishes
