HENRICO (WRIC) – It is always a surprise when guests drop by unexpectedly. But a Sandston woman was floored when she awoke to find a peacock in her kitchen.
Justin Baynes, the woman's brother, says the bird doesn't seem to have an owner, but has been spotted for months around their home.
When she walked into the kitchen, she found the colorful bird standing there. She believes it came in through their door, which was open slightly.
Baynes says attempts to get the peacock out the door were unsuccessful, so she called their father who picked up the bird and took it outside.
If you believe the bird is yours, please contact the Henrico County Animal Protection Unit: 804-501-4000.
