Jeanette, that isn't "country", that is recycling/repurposing! That's a good thing!
Looks good! And I love the sign! Big Grin

I think it's cute. Please tell us more about the peacock building. Is it your garden shed? Or a house for your peacocks?

Tell us more about your peacocks. Are you breeding? How much trouble are they to keep?

Nice building....I want to see the peacocks too!

I think the planted tires are neat!

One of my neighbors has peacocks, I can hear them off in the distance sometimes at night when it's really quiet.

We have peacocks at neighboring farms. They are like watchdogs! When we ride our horses by the farms they will call out with their high pitched shrills and the horses just kind of "melt" underneath us ... LOL! They are beautiful birds. And your chicken coop is the fanciest I've ever seen! Like a condo! Thanks for sharing Smile

Love it all! I'm going to show DH how you set it up. I've been saving ideas for our future goat stalls and chicken coops.

For anyone thinking about building a chicken coop any time in the future, try visiting the net site backyardchickens.com! There is a wealth of info there.
Also, think about this....a piece of flooring vinyl on the coop floor for easy cleaning, a "poop" box under the roost with an outside "door/slot" for scooping out. And don't forget a latchable/lockable run door so night critters can't get in. A couple other things some folks have had to add was something to keep the wild critters from digging under to get into pens and covering the top of open pens to keep the hawks out.

Oh I remember when you first posted the picture of the peacocks that just showed up. Did not know that you kept them and built them a house. Boy did they come to the right place!!!

OMG, that is just too cute!!! Country living is getting more amazing by the moment! I just love it all! I am tickled pink when ya'll talk about 'your horses, goats, chickens, wild turkeys, snakes, hawks and now PEACOCKS!!! I saw Peacocks last year at this cute little petting zoo type of place we found. It was really cute and we had a ball!!! (we took lots of pics of chickens, roosters, sheep, goats, peacocks, llamas, etc.)
I can't believe that amazing house you built for your new pets. A State of the Art Peacock Condo, who would have thought!? I would be in awe with my jaw hung open, just amazingly special!!! (us city folk don't see that too often....)

Love your little coop and those beautiful birds too.

Those tires are the cutest planters and add such charm to it. Your DGS must be delighted with the sign recognizing his hard work.

Enjoyed your photos and the story of how it all began.
