There's a peacock escapee running with the wild turkey ladies where our horses live. He must have a turkey fetish. At first the turkey hens seemed weirded out, but now they seem resigned to his presence...He's part of their group. He opened his fan one day to impress them. The horses freaked out and ran up the hill like "What the heck is that???" Anyway, I just don't know how the Toms can compete with THAT FAN! It's not like they have Turkey Fan endowment pills. It will be interesting to see what happens when the Toms come around.

I know it's not possible but I can imagine what the result of a pecock turkey union would look like. A Peakey or a Turcock. ;-d

trading and possession of peacock feathers are legal in India, its our bad luck and poaching of National bird increasing day by day, Minister Jairam Ramesh placed draft to ban but same never became legislation part.
