Over the past summer I went to a peacock farm and it was probably one of the most unique experiences ever. Now I don't really know a lot about peacocks besides the fact that the fan there feathers when mating (which sadly we didn't go during mating season so we didn't see any of this) but my dad told me about the reasoning behind the farm. Here's what I remember, fill in the blanks when needed.
Some rich guy owned a large plantation and imported a bunch of peacocks then he died so now the farm is a museum of some sorts.
Now I'm not actually sure if thats historically accurate or anything but we will just go with it for the time being. Annnnnnnyyyyywayy
the farm is located in Carlsbad, California where my uncle lives which is why we were in town. The actual plantation is absolutely gorgeous and while we were there we saw people taking senior photos.
One of the cool things about this farm is that they're aren't really any rules. You basically just walk around with the peacocks.
Now I'm not saying that you can just walk in and walk out with a peacock, but I'm also not saying that it would be hard to do so. Long story short here are some things I learned while at the farm and of course some pictures :))))
1. Peacocks are a lot more scary than you would think ( but personally I think all things with feathers are frightening to some extent)
2. Peacocks shed feathers like a mofo. ( I actually got to collect some of the feathers and since they don't decay they are now decoration in my room
3. Little children are much more afraid of peacocks than I am. I most certainly enjoyed watching my little siblings scurrying away in fear whenever one would approach us.
If you're every in the Carlsbad Area definitely check out the infamous peacock farm, its worth while.
P.S my sister took all of the pictures of me :) She's the perfect photographer
