Poultry Yard

Any estate always had a poultry yard where turkeys, geese, ducks and hens were kept and bred.

Peafowl

The Indian peafowl was called so due to its habitat which is tropical forests and jungles of India, Sri Lanka and Pakistan. It is also known as the blue peafowl because the head, neck and a part of the chest of a male is of a distinct blue colour. The back is green and the lower part of the body is black. Females are usually smaller and not so bright. Moreover, they lack a huge stunning upper-tail converts that males are remarkable for.

The peacock is the largest representative among the birds of its order. It is one of the most beautiful birds in the world. Its beauty was valued long ago – 4000 years ago peacocks lived in the gardens of Babylon and its nearby countries. The birds were brought from India and bought at a high cost because they were considered the best decoration of gardens and parks.

In the first millennium CE Alexander the Great brought peacocks to Greece where they were appreciated by their beauty. However, in Rome where they got from Hellas, the attitude was different – there the birds were fried.

Much time later they were both admired and eaten.

Peacocks are really appreciated, especially for the beauty of their so-called tails that are not tails in reality but upper-tail coverts. Peacocks adjust themselves easily to a new climate and are easy to keep. The offspring are raised by females. There 4-7 eggs in a net on average. Baby birds like from any other Galliformes stand straight at once and grow quite rapidly.

Domesticated Guinea-Fowl

As well as the peafowl, the guinea-fowl belongs to Galliformes. It is descended from the wild species of Africa and derives its name from the Guinean coast in West Africa. The bird lives in flocks in nature but being domesticated now it is used to living alone. It runs fast and flies quite well. It has all the characteristics of Galliformes. However, unlike males from other families male guinea-fowls participate in the offspring upbringing. The habit is very original resembling vaguely turkeys.

Pheasant

The pheasant is one of the most remarkable representatives of Galliformes distinguished by its original colouring. It has golden orange body coat, dark-coloured head with bright scarlet leather areas among eyes. The pheasant’s body has much in common with the hen but distinguishes by its long tail. The behavior is similar to that of domestic hens. There’s a legend that the pheasant was brought in Europe from Colchis. In Belarus it came from Czechoslovakia. Their natural habitat is Western and Central Asia, Japan, Koree. The bird is very warm-requiring. It cannot live in regions that are sometimes covered by thick snow as the major part of its life it spends aground because it is not fond of flying. Same as all the Galliformes prefers vegetable food though sometimes can eat insects.

Muscovy Duck

The Muscovy Duck was called in such a way as old birds are alleged to evolve the smell of musk. It is also known as the three duck as it nests on trees in nature. Its natural habitat is Southern American rainforests. Domesticated by the Aztec in ancient times, it was brought to Africa afterwards and then to Europe. It is easy to keep. The diet is diverse, the bird is fond of worms and insects.
