Pharaoh the Peacock Returns to Northwood, NH Farm
Pharaoh the Peacock is back at The Fairy Farm.
After being spotted several times along Route 4 in Northwood and on nearby Garland Road in Nottingham, he returned to the farm on Saturday morning, according to Michael Magoon, who helped owner Theresa LaBrecque find Pharaoh.
“It’s a miracle! He came home on his own. I don’t know what did that. He’s home and we’re trying to find him a peacock (female peacock) to stay at home”, Magoon told Seacoast Current.
Pharaoh took off earlier this month and his antics amused people in the greater Northwood area.
Magoon estimates that Pharaoh traveled about 12 miles from the farm. When people sent photos of where they spotted him, he put pins on a map.
“I know I put 300 miles on my vintage car looking for it. It goes straight. It goes through the woods. I drive on the roads. I would like to know how far it has cumulatively traveled,” said Magoon.
Pharaoh’s health was good when he returned and he ate spinach, his favorite food.
“He looks great. We thought he would have injuries but none. He’s a hearty bird. They’re hard to catch and cunning. He doesn’t look hurt at all. He’s in. made very healthy, ”said Magoon.
LaBrecque believes Pharaoh took off earlier this month to try and find a mate because he is 12 to 13 years old and has never done anything like that during the time she possessed him.
“For now, our initiative is to try to find him a peahen. We called six different farms and no one had any. We found one online for $ 1,367, but what if he rejects it or she rejects it? That’s a lot of money to spend on a peahen, “said Magoon.
Magoon and LaBrecque must also bring in Pharaoh The fairy farm peacock house.
“What we need is about ten people to wrap a net around him. You throw the net at him and they humanely capture him. We have zip ties for his legs. We put a towel on him. around him to be comforted and then we bring him… up to the peacock house and put him in, ”Magoon said.
Magoon started a Facebook page to help with research which he said got 600 subscribers in a single day.
