Really mesmerizing. Wait..were's my wallet?


thefringeseanmachine

they're beautiful, but absolutely horrible to live with. they're insanely loud, they take massive, horrendous poops, and they're dumb as a sack of hammers. like, we had to legitimately avoid running them over driving five mph because they wouldn't turn around. just a day or so ago CBS aired a story about how they were invading some California suburb and this dude was complaining "they're so stupid they'll see their own reflection on the side of your car and start attacking it."

My folks have a neighbor who breeds peafowl. They get out all the time. On the one hand, it's pretty cool to unexpectedly see a group of peacocks as you drive down there street, but on the other hand, hope you're not in a hurry. I was a kid and heard them call/scream for the first time in the middle of the night. It translated to me as a woman yelling "help!" I laid there in bed, terrified, wondering what I could possibly do.

This is too true. They are horrible. LOUD at all hours - with decidedly human-sounding screaches, especially during spring/summer. Are attracted to anything colourful or shiny. Wearing a bright shirt will have them approach. The wild ones are also typically infested with mites. Source: We have over 40 wild ones roaming the grounds where we live.


Pardon_the_cat

Neighbors once had them, very picky birds. You can’t make them stay, they choose where they want and will get out if they can’t. Found them in a roof of a barn one time when they escaped.


Void_Ling

I've heard one from afar, didn't know the place nor the bird, that startled me. That's damn loud.


lame_mantra

Random fact of the day that I didn't know about. >Only the males are actually “peacocks.”The collective term for these birds is “peafowl.” The males are “peacocks” and the females are “peahens.” The babies are called “peachicks.”


KateBushFuckingSucks

Also, male baby peafowls can be called *peachicks with di-* oh wait nevermind.


karlnite

I noticed a lot of zoos started using the broader peafowl name.

The [peafowl](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peafowl) originates from India. Peafowls were probably imported to Britain by the Romans, then later became associated with royalty. The males are known as peacocks while the females are known as peahens.

In my village, peacocks are common. They mostly lived in the fields away from people’s houses, but would sometimes come over and sit on your house fence. Long ago, when times were simpler, my grandma would bring me the feather of a peacock if she found one lying in the jungle somewhere. That would be an awesome gift. As kids, we could play so many games with just a feather!
