    someone i know is selling their property. wild peacocks started living there many years ago and took residence. they didn't mind and so they've been living there for over 20 years. now his parents are retiring and need to sell the property and the realtor is saying they need to get rid of the peacocks.

    i've called around people i know in the houston area that own/sell peacocks and no one has returned my call. there's about 20+ peacocks, some old, some babies...that need to find new homes. if anyone knows someone that can help catch and place them into new homes, i'd greatly appreciate it. thanks.

    I live in Beaumont and I would like a few peacocks. I have been wanting one for a long, long time! How can we come and see them?

    If anybody comes to Houston to get peacocks I'm good for a peacock catching expedition! Don't want any but I will help catch.

    I am over in Silsbee. To see all my peacock photos, go over to Facebook to: Doug's Peacock Farm. Beginning the last week of June I will have 8 week old birds for $30 each, any color.

    I wish you would post your photos here, cause I can't see them on your FB page.
