I know that few, if any, of us would want to eat one of our pretty peafowl, but when I was searching for aviary ideas on youtube I stumbled across a guy who ordered a peacock from an exotic food company and he prepared it and ate it. He finally takes a bite around 8:41 in the video...It is worth a watch just to hear what he thinks about it. I just found it interesting because I know people used to serve peafowl at big dinner parties or something. In fact, in one of the Pirates of the Carribean there is a peacock on a dinner table... Anyways here is the video: Would I eat one of my peafowl? Nope!
