Having a peacock -- a spectacular example of natural beauty -- in a Victorian garden was a kind of status symbol. Hang small birds in cages handmade from wire hardware cloth, and let larger faux peacocks (a splurge, but worth the investment for their drama) roam free. To make the black-and-white backdrops, we had photos enlarged and printed onto vinyl.
Use hardware cloth (a type of metal mesh) to make an enclosure for the two-foot peacock. The flat-bottomed version can stand on a table or the floor. The other is meant to be hung.
