Cool...no tents, no needles...any poop on the sidewalk? Just kidding. Are they skittish around you or they've grown to trust you?
I can hand feed them. Oh... late add after the stuff below that I just thought of: I can call them out of the woods. Like chickums.

When they floof up during mating season, at least one of them will "train" or "bond" on me. He'll floof up, and shuffle closer to where I can actually sorta stroke his huge feathers. And this one will drive off all the others who would presume to try the same thing.

Lastly, they shed those huge feathers every year. So we have literally hundreds of exotic feathers in containers in the Chateau. Some are five feet long. Fuzzy (cat) LOVES to play with the big ones.

Scooter has about fifty peafowl that like to stay at his farm, so he has thousands of feathers. He's got a three-foot jardiniere that is jammed-full of them.

They make too much noise unless you conditioned them.
A lotsa people say that. It just ain't so. They do have a really kewl melodious sort of yodel when they are trying to find each other in the woods (or if you yodel, they will answer). But you could go a month without hearing a sound.

Doggos, meanwhile... NEVER shut up. EVER. Fortunately, I like doggies. The two in the back are adorable: Razor blade and husky. But all they know is "WOOF!". And they will repeat it forever. :don't know::beer::blond:

I hear they are a great security alarm too, them and geese.
I have a brightly-lit-at-night American flag hanging out over the end my of dirt road. Statistically, this puts the Chateau in the 1%-percentile.

First off, you are prolly lost if you show up. Aside from the mail-lady and garbage guys, there will be no one but family down my road more than once a month... if that. And all the folks around know about the crazy old bastage with all the fargin guns, cannon, and stuff.

that's the thing about Muttons, every time he gets out he heads straight to Vegas. He can't help it!

that's how he was caught the last time.
