Peafowl: Old & New
Rosie’s father Michael recently bought two peacocks at the local fowl market. There were peacocks on the farm in previous generations, and the photo above, taken about 80 years ago, shows one of the last peacocks resident at the O’Gorman farm. Sitting gracefully with the peacock are Rosie’s great aunts; Sheila and Brigid O’Gorman. To the right, are the new peacocks. For now, their names are Bonnie and Clyde, but we are open to suggestions. Still to grow their signature tail feathers, they must remain in an enclosed area for a few months until they become acclimated to their new home and their new canine friends. Once they settle in, they will be allowed to roam around the farm, hangout and look fabulous.
