Peafowl chicks 1 day old

Mother peafowl and her 1 day old chicks

Our India Blue hen successfully hatched 5 of the 8 eggs in her nest. Today, she brought them out to show off to the entire flock. One is much smaller and probably the last to hatch. She stepped on him a few times so I wasn’t sure she wanted him to catch up. But so far, they all seem fine. We are on the lookout for the black snake that hangs out around the nursery for that is the most immediate danger for the chicks. Here is a picture of the hen and the five chicks.
