They are beautiful Barbara ... some folk believe they bring back luck if you have them indoors.
I don't have a problem with them :)

It does Dave..the peacock is known as 'the bird with one hundred eyes' and features in lots of biblical and other texts....:))

Yes Margaret, my Mum used to say they were unlucky inside the house, as in pictures and so on, but only if their tails were fanned out:)

Outstanding beauty, peacocks many many years ago used to land on our roof, sometimes we find their beautiful feathers and keep them in school books. Today we never see them anymore!

I have a large bouquet of peacock feathers in my breakfast room. I never tire of them.
Mar 10 2012 16:33 GMT bandsix
I don't see how anyone could tire of them Larry...they are one of Nature's miracles in my book :))) (This feather is on a peacock wreath that I used to hang on the door at Christmas....it's now in my 'studio' )

at one adress in SA we had one in our garden ...they make a terrible noice early in the morning !! .... but the feathers are beautiful !! :-)

They do have a raucous cry Hans.....not as attractive as their feathers!!
