I have an extra peacock that I am trying to sell. I have it listed on Craigslist (San Francisco) and our local Yahoo group for chickens. I am getting tons of responses, but everyone responding is horribly ignorant and/or annoying. How does everyone else sell their extras? I am wasting a lot of time answering stupid questions or waiting for people who never show. I have him listed for $25 and describe him as an average peacock that is the product of parents that I adopted as strays from the animal shelter and kept in a large aviary. The reason for selling is that he is fighting with his father. Questions I have received: I don't have a crate for him, can I just hold him on my lap when I drive? I don't have a crate, can I just tie his legs together and throw him in the bed of my pickup? Is he house trained? I live in a townhouse with a courtyard, is he trained to stay in his yard? I live downtown but don't believe in caging animals, will he stay in my yard? Can my kids (toddlers) pet/play with him? Would you mind delivering him 2 hours away for free? I live downtown, can you guarantee that he won't be loud? (I get this one A LOT!) I get these, along with the basic questions that a minute or two of web surfing would tell them....like how long do they live? (my thought is that, if you are too lazy to do a quick internet search on the basic info about an animal before you buy it, you won't do it after you buy it and therefore you are unlikely to care for it properly, nor take it to a vet if there is a problem.) In the week that I had it posted on CL I got well over a dozen responses. Virtually all contained multiple questions from above. Those that didn't never showed up at the agreed upon time and were never heard from again. I see peacocks listed all the time on CL. Is everyone else getting this? How do you deal? I am not asking much because I want him gone, but I don't want to send it somewhere where he won't be cared for either.
