    The hard bit is living with the amount of noise they make.

    I didn't know they could fly!

    A large house near us has peacocks in the grounds, and they're always up trees and on the rooves. I think they must have clipped wings though, because I've never seen one fly. I always assumed they climbed up the buildings, but on second thoughts that's probably a bit insane. They can probably fly short distances.

    And yes, they're very loud.

    Sorry - I haven't answered your question. Are you thinking of buying one?

    Can they fly? Or do they just fall slowly?

    Apparently one of the problems of keeping them is that they fly off! Who knew! I thought they would be too heavy.

    Ha, yes I would love to have some one day. When I open my theme park...

    You would have to have grounds / forest for them to roam in during the day, they also roost in trees.

    They are omnivores like us, however they usually feed on reptiles / amphibians / incests.

    They are noisy (We have a parrot and he sometimes drives us insane when he's screeching for hours on end) and you would likely have to get a peahen and a peacock.

    I can't imagine you can train them to be 'friendly' as you could say a large parrot.

    Ooh how exciting. I really want some in the future now.

    You sound like you used to have some?
