All things Peacock

I have been busy pinning wonderful peacock items to my Pinterest board "strut like a peacock" and thought I would share them here. A few of them anyway. Love this peacock ring!

Chickens at Windy Willows

Chickens at Windy Willows

Many of the animals at Sir Winslow’s Zoo were exotic, unfamiliar and extraordinary. However, some of them were a necessary means of running an estate in rural England. Chickens were part of this latter group of animals, but as cute as any of them. White fuzzy chickens were on bug control in the gardens of Windy Willows, Sir Winslow’s Estate.

Sir Winslow kept a nice flock of Frizzle chickens, both for eggs just to watch them strut around the yard....

Sir Winslow and the Peacock

During his stay in India where he was studying the Bengal tiger and counting their stripes, Sir Winslow came to know many other creatures. One of these animals was the peacock. On the edge of the jungle where the base camp was set, a flock of peacocks had been pecking in the brush. Their iridescent feathers glistened in the sunlight and it was impossible to not be mesmerized by the sight. However, during the night, it was a rather noisy neighbor. It has a horrible “CAW CAKKKKKKK” that kept the explorers awake for hours. Sir Winslow knew that something had...
