Time to grow up, kid.
I caught this scene just a few days ago and didn't realize what was apparently going on. I think poor baby (no name, yet--waiting to see whether it's a boy or girl) was being told to "grow up and stop following me around all the time". Harsh! Just a few days later, Mrs. Dandy was hanging out with Mr. Dandy and if baby came anywhere close, she chased him/her away. So sad. He/she is a little lost, wandering around the barn all alone. I'm hoping he/she will pick a chicken friend or maybe a lamb friend to hang out with. I suspect Mrs. Dandy's behavior means she's going back on the nest. Really, we'd just as soon she didn't. We don't need anymore peafowl here and do you know how difficult it is to get your friends to take home one or two baby peafowl ( hello there, Sara and Saint Tim ) ?
