||Seven years old|

is a peacock, of course, and he is a resident of Bill Brink's Farm in
Castana, Iowa. He struts his stuff all over that farm. He screams 'help'
whenever he wants because he's a "tough guy" peacock!
Blue was given to my grandfather by his daughter Sheryl. He doesn't know any
tricks but if you have a shiny bumper on your car/truck, you better watch
out! Tough guy here will stiffen up when he sees his reflection and start
beating himself up! He'll peck and scratch at his reflection and it has
actually left scratches and dents because he gets so aggressive.
Blue holds his ground against the chickens and geese that try to chase him
away from his food. You can't touch Blue, but you can get very close to look
at him though. He is the only peacock on the farm so he's probably lonely.
Sometimes I will yell 'help' in a weird voice and he will call back to me! He
likes apples too! He's a pretty special bird!
