I thought that maybe the branches of a tin Christmas tree (you know, those old silver trees like they had in Charlie Brown) would be a good combination between Christmas ornament bouquets and peacock feathers, since they have a feather-y look. It is found in a much larger habitat range than the other types of peafowl. I just can see spending that much money on flowers when they only last for that day. Is it considered weird for a woman/ teen girl to be seen alone in the mens clothing department? You may look into local farms/bird enthusiasts to see if there is someplace local that has peacocks. Thankfully, plenty of cruelty-free cat toys are available, or you can always make your own at home—cats love shoestrings, boxes, and rolled-up aluminum foil! I would feel bad about that. Choose from a number of bright and festive colored decorative artificial peacocks like blue, green, or purple and violet hues. In the case of peacock feathers, it’s the structure of the feathers that are responsible for their striking colors.

Ribosomes are organelles and help produce […], In math, the squared symbol (2) is an arithmetic operator that signifies multiplying a number by itself.

Do you mind telling me where you found them? Most craft stores like Michael's sell real peacock feathers.

I would like to use some in my wedding but not if they are real. There are three different species of peafowl: the Indian peafowl the green peafowl and the Congo peafowl.
