Missing peahen

Postby nicoeflein » Fri Sep 17, 2010 11:07 pm

Hello everyone, two days ago I bought two India Blue Pied peahens for my lone peacock, and as I was moving them into the holding enclosure, for the new birds, one of the hens escaped, and flew off, free and flying! She sat in a pine tree for the first day and night, but by the next day she was gone. Luckily, while I was checking on the animals later that day, I heard her calling, but a long way back into the woods. I decided to follow the noise, and I found her, sitting on the bridge across the river, calling like a mad woman. Once I tried creeping within 20 ft of her, she flew of again, and I chased after her this time, not wanting to lose her again. This time she flew into the neighbors yard, which was quite a chase, and I lost her for the night. The next day, yesterday, my neighbor came over asking if I was missing a peahen! I quickly grabbed the net and carrier and rushed over there, but to my "surprise" the peahen was gone again, and no where to be found. I did here some peculiar noises from the woods earlier today, but nothing that I could distinguish as a peahen. Now I am becoming pretty worried, and hoped that maybe someone from here could help. If anyone has a trick to attracting, calling, or finding a missing peahen, please reply soon, and maybe I can put this wild peahen chase to a close, and bring her home. . . Thanks for reading, and please reply back with any help, or encouraging words!

Would it be easier to catch her at night? I've done that with some difficult chickens, you can walk right up to them with a torch.
Hope you get her back..... icon_confused.gif
