I live in the foothills of Calif, and get an occasional flock of turkeys coming across our property.
Yesterday I saw a flock of about 10 birds. Among the turkeys was a male peacock. These are wild
turkeys and I know of no one who has any peacocks in the area. It is spring here and the mating
season is on. One male was chasing a hen, and the peacock got into the action by spreading his tail.
My wife checked things out and declared it a very flamboyant turkey!

..back in the day (well...great-great-grand paw's day), at least in the deep south. still find folks that let them run loose (also Guinea Fowl). occasionaly find them out in the woods (guess you'd call them feral).

yep...back in those days, they'd eat them. Today, likely would be politically incorrect to do so 9but would taste just as good).
