Kenneth's feathers

During Summer time, Kenneth likes to dance aroundand show off his feathers to attract a mate.

  • His longest feathers can be up to 1 METRE LONG!!!
  • He sheds his feathers every year in late February
  • It doesn't hurt when he loses his feathers
  • Peacocks use their feathers to attract females (Peahens) in the wild. Combined with his loud call, he is quite an impressive sight!
  • Every year we sell the feathers he drops in our gift shop, this helps pay for some of the food he eats

The video below shows how he looks when his feathers are out on display.
