Martha Stewart is mourning the death of six of her pet peacocks after sharing on social media over the weekend that coyotes had killed some of her birds “in broad daylight”.
Stewart posted the update on her Instagram account on Saturday.
She shared with 3.9 million followers that her birds were killed.
Stewart shared a video of one of the peacocks, Blue Boy, showing off his feathers with Marvin Gaye’s song “Let’s Get It On” playing in the background.
Stewart wrote on Instagram, “Coyotes came in broad daylight and devoured him and five others including the beautiful White Boy,” she wrote.

“Solutions to get rid of six big aggressive coyotes that have expensive tastes in poultry?”
She also described the steps she is taking to prevent such attacks in the future.
“We no longer allow peacocks out of their yard, we enclose the top of their large yard with wire fencing etc,” Stewart wrote in the same Instagram post.
It’s unclear how many Peacocks Stewart has right now, as Fox 5 DC pointed out.
In May 2021, she shared on Twitter that she had “21 of these glorious birds whose homes are spotless.”
“They don’t smell. They’re so clean!” she wrote.
“Their voices are loud but so fun to hear. They’re so friendly,” she added.

Stewart has long shared information and updates with her followers about her many pets as well as her house and home projects, both indoors and outdoors.
In a recent blog post, she shared the news that her “beautiful Fell Pony, Banchunch, is enjoying her new shoes.”
“All my horses get new shoes every four to six weeks. Made of metal or sometimes rubber or other materials, horseshoes are designed to protect the horse’s hooves from wear and tear,” she writes. .

She explained: “Each shoe needs to fit properly to prevent mobility issues from developing. Horseshoes usually stay on the animal’s hooves until the farrier comes back to change them, but sometimes a horse will throw a shoe during a ride or just outside the paddock.”
“Once that’s done, my dear pony Fell is now ready for a good rest. See you soon, my beautiful Banchunch.”
“That’s exactly what happened to Banchunch – he threw away one of his front shoes, so we called the farrier, Marc Hill, to come and visit.”
She ended the post with, “When finished, my dear pony Fell is now ready for a good rest. See you soon, my beautiful Banchunch.”

“The Beatles recorded and released ‘Hey Jude’ in August 1968,” she shared a few days ago. “I just found my original 45 in my files. I’m giving it to my 11-year-old granddaughter, Jude,” she wrote, sharing a photo of the record-breaking 45.
