I left some peacock feathers in the cup that hold the pen and pencils at work to spruce things up a bit last week.. And today I noticed that the calender photo for this month was a peacock! I love peacocks. They are such beautiful birds. I wish I was out of city. Because I think I would definitely get some of these for pets. I Wonder how much they cost? I could probably make some extra cash selling peacock feathers!

Have you seen the Piebald peacocks? OMG. I like things that are unique and different and these fit that bill.

We went to an animal park that had peacocks and they were selling feathers there. If you found a feather in the big open yards you weren't allowed to keep. They are beautiful birds but can be noisy.

@responsiveme I kinda like it. Although I guess if one lived next to them and the sound was never-ending.. It might get annoying.

I love them I recently bought some on ebay so I could take photographs of them. that is why I had these feathers in my purse and thought I would leave the m at work before they got ruined.

my big brother brought home peacock feathers as decoration here at home. the feathers were so good and colorful as well. unfortunately, the feathers went 'bald' (?) because some strands fell off.

@minx267 i like them too. they have a different kind of color formation, i think every peacock or peahen has its own distinct feather color design, am i right?

@minx267 I think that the peacocks, the pigeons and the parrots are the most beautiful birds ever

@deniale97 I like many birds. here in the US Pigeons are looked at as vermin sometimes.. like Rats with feathers. They are very prolific in the cities. I like them. we have many colorful birds like the Blue Jay and the red Cardinals and even a Yellow finch -this one I was able to get a picture of a few years ago.. I was quite lucky as it is a rare sighting.

I love them too. I found a beautiful dress online that has peacock feathers in the print. It made so lovely the feathers rising up.

I do not know how much they cost, but they produce the most annoying sound in the world. Only male birds are beautiful. They fly, they shed their feathers each year.
