PEACOCKS

What are peacocks?

Peacocks are large birds that are part of the pheasant family. Both males and females are commonly called “peacocks”, although technically, only the males are peacocks. Females are known as peahens, and both are referred to as peafowl. Adults are 8-13 lbs, and range in body length from 35-50 inches. They have iridescent tail feathers with “eye markings”. The tail feathers spread out in a distinctive train during mating and courtship rituals. They are ground-feeders and typically eat things like fruit, plants, insects, lizards, frogs, and other small creatures.

Why do I have them?

Peacocks are attracted to properties that provide abundant sources of food and water. If your property has a lot of flowering plants, fruit trees, or ponds, peacocks may call it home.

Are peacocks dangerous?
