Peacocks and their feathers are a great inspiration for me, the colours in the jewel toned tails feathers is well just beautiful. The picture below is from Design Seeds website and I have another one pinned to my Colour board on Pinterest
I have great memories as a child coming back from a trip to Brownsea Island with a few of the dropped tail feathers. One of my grandparents didn't want me to bring them in to their house as they considered them bad luck, these days I think that superstition is beginning to fade a bit.
The one thing I would really like is to have a Peacock and Peahen but they are very very noisy and I don't think I would be very popular with my neighbours and maybe the rest of our village. So we had better stick to our chickens, ducks and quails.
