Harrybrooke Park Staff Happy As A Peacock With New Arrivals
If you've been to Harrybrooke Park in New Milford recently, you know the wait has been on for the arrival of the baby peachicks. Well, it looks like the wait is over.
Not too long ago, we told you about the Peacocks returning to Harrybrooke Park, now we can tell you about the family of peacocks that now call the park their home.
The good news started early Monday morning when Liz and Frank became proud parents with the arrival of the first peachick. Then, on Monday afternoon, the family size doubled with the arrival of the second peachick.
Needless to say, the staff at Harrybrooke Park is elated at the newest arrivals. Bill Buckbee, who is the Executive Director at Harrybrooke Park, and assistant Lindsey took to "Facebook live" Monday afternoon to fill everyone in on the latest peachick news.
We are so excited to let everyone know that we now have two new editions to our peacock family. Two of the five eggs have hatched. We don't know the sex of the peachicks yet, a vet will be examining them within the next day or so and we'll get more information then. It will take about three years for them to be old enough to be considered mature. We know the park has agreed to keep one of the peachicks, the others will go to local farms, places they can grow, be nurtured, and cared for.
If you're going to be in the park soon, or just want to stop by and see the peachicks, the park did issue an advisory.
Please be mindful of Liz and the babies while visiting the peacocks, we want to make sure they are able to rest and not be spooked. They will make their way outside when they are ready.
