Did you know a baby peacock is called a peachick? I didn’t until I started writing this post up. I’m not even sure I had ever even seen a baby peacock, er peachick, before in my life. This peachick’s name is Drew and he was rescued by the folks at Hairy Farmpit Girls in White Oak, Georgia. Last week, they captured him strutting around with his new big-bird feathers for the first time and it’s really, really cute.

News4Jax reports:

“Drew was thrown in a garbage can out in Douglas, Georgia,” Jennifer Evitts, owner of Hairy Farmpit Girls… “Someone saw what happened, grabbed him and then reached out to us to see if we would take him as she didn’t know what to do with him.”

…In addition to providing a safe haven for abused or neglected animals, the farm sells a range of goat milk-based products, from soap to lotion to lip balm, to support their cause.
