Okay, to start with, they came on Friday to "fix" things. That didn't happen. So, called again and after a very rude conversation they agreed to come back out the same day. They never did come out, or even call.
Then they said they'd come out on Sunday sometime between 1-3. They show up at the house (WITHOUT CALLNG BEFOREHAND!), and the peeps weren't home. They get there, the guy starts doing his thing, and next thing you know he's unplugged out Time Capsule (computer storage/memory thing). Red flag right there.
Then he manages to break out TV, the table the TV was on and messed up the BluRay! He wasn't even apologetic about it. His supervisor/boss is coming out soon ASSess the damage and he damn well better do something about it. Grr!
On to happier news! Yesterday we brought home some new pets! 2 peafowl and 7 red pheasants. And a while ago we'd gotten a peahen (girl peacock), so this makes 3 peafowl. We're going to breed the peafowl and possibly the pheasants, all of which will be documented and shared on the blog.
Raja (male peacock). A raja is an Indian prince/king, fitting for such a regal bird.
Princess (first female peahen)
Duchess (female peahen)
Belle (female pheasant)
Ariel (female pheasant)
Cinderella (female pheasant)
Jasmine (female pheasant)
Mulan (female pheasant)
Aurora (female pheasant)
Walt Disney (male pheasant)
Brings the animal headcount to:
The Minions 3
*mumbles* "On this episode of Animal Hoarders..." (just kidding, we're not hoarders. The peeps are too neat freaky for that, and it's only us Dachshunds, the turtle and the cats that are inside.)
We spent yesterday building most of their pen, and we'll finish tomorrow. 'Cause it's makes so much more sense to get the birds before the pen. BOL!
Kisses and Tail Wags,
|This is Princess|
|The beautiful Raja|
|The red pheasants|
|(not my photo, got it off Google) This is what the male red pheasant will look like full grown.|

|"OMD OMD OMD there's a big blue bird in my car!!!"|
|Dachshund Mommy: These birds are about 6x bigger than Nola, and Nola has no fear of them.|
|This is the part we can see from the house, so we made this wire so we can watch them.|
|The end to a fun day!|
