Ketchikan, Alaska - Born with flight feathers these five delightful Ketchikan peachicks were taught by their mother to fly within days of hatching. They now sleep high on a perch in their pea-house snuggled in their mother's warm, soft feathers.

Peahens are excellent and loving parents. They will continue to adore and watch over their offspring even after the chicks reach adulthood.
