Five peacocks were born in Pavlovsk State reserve museumIn early summer a couple of cranes and a couple of peacocks were brought here from Leningrad zoo, and a special open-air cage was made for them. Having accustomed herself to living in the park, a peahen started laying eggs and decided to hatch posterity. The family was at once allotted a separate dwelling - a room in guard house near the Roses Pavilion. Hatched little peacocks feel great - most of the day they stay under the mother's wing and leave this safe place only to eat. Reproduction of these rare for our country birds not at liberty is a unique fact.
