When the world was young birds had not acquired their feathers. In the winter Peacock, Eagle and Owl along with many others birds would shiver in the winter. They would huddle together in caves or holes in the ground. Leaves were the next best thing to a blanket. The birds felt it wasn’t fair that Fox had fur and Turtle had a shell. One night, all the animals met under the full moon and were promised to be clothed at dawn. When the dawn came, Peacock was still asleep. Peacock heard the noise of the birds singing praise for their new feathers. Peacock was sad. How did he miss out on feathers of his own? The other animals each donated a feather to Peacock. Do you suppose it worked?
