    Hi, I know a lot about peafowl but don't have any yet. But I'd like to post the cons and pros and facts about peafowl.


    Pros-
    *with the right owner peafowl can be nice and jump on your lap just like my chickens.
    *if you get them as chicks, a few of days old. they will still think there your mom for the rest of there life's if you do this. Hold them for about 2 hours a day, give the treats, put them on the ground and let them follow you, let them sleep on you, and let them see you before they go to sleep and when they wake up.
    *they will eat all of the bugs in time.
    *they are like chickens but bigger and prettier
    *they are good with kids.
    *they will most likely lay a egg a day
    Cons-
    *with the wrong owners they can be mean
    *sometimes they will peck if they feel iterated
    *they can be messy
    *some can be mean
    *they can be load
    Facts-
    *when breeding peacocks will make load sounds
    *males are called peacocks, females are called peahens, babies are called peachicks, and referring to all peafowl.
    *they can be aggressive
    *last of all that I can think of, peafowl stay in groups called parties.
    That's all I could come up with, if you have anything to add commit or ask questions feel free to post down below
