By the way, a female 'peacock' is called a 'peahen'. It's called a pea-cock because it has one.

Well it's a start, but we don't have a big problem with peacocks where I live, maybe they could catch a few crows though.

Fine the peacocks! Not a big fine, just a poultry sum. They need to pay for their crimes.
