Do people eat Peacocks?  

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 

A neighboring farm has/had 3 Peacocks.  She had them for a couple of months in her chicken pen then let them loose on her property.  She has 2 German Shepherds that are famous for killing her ducks.

WELL, there's a Peacock in my woods.  A young male.  I feed him and gave him water because he was panting really hard.  Then after about an hour of standing in the woods getting eaten by bugs I cornered him and he went NUTS.  He was so big I couldn't get a good grip on him and he got away...honking at me as he took off.

Now I live in an area full of morons.  This past fall (or was it winter??) a dumb@$$ shot at a deer that was in my front yard...towards my house!  I'm afraid someone will see him and kill him for food.  I've never heard of eating a Peacock.  Do people eat them?  If so he's a goner.  hit  Heck folks around here would kill him for fun.  Hopefully he stays on my property.

Edited to fix the title.  Go was supposed to be "Do" lol

I have heard of people eating them. In fact, my friend, who owns a ranch, had them as pets and one of her farm workers broke into their enclosure and caught them... then ate them. th He was obviously fired....

Oh Brother...
Good luck trying to catch him...

I would hope they wouldn't eat them...

I can hear him hollering in the woods.  He's alive for now.  I hope to keep feeding him and hopefully I'll have me a free ranging Peacock.  big_smile  Or if I can catch him should I give him back?    If I give him back he'll just be killed by the neighbor's dogs.
