I acctually own 5 peafowl! They really compleate a garden, in fact they are the reason I got into gardening! They do peck at plants, but do not destroy most plants. What I like about them is unlike most large birds like chickens and turkeys, they do not scratch as much spareing your grass and such. They eat bugs and put on quite a show that is sure to amaze guests. Some places in the US have wild peafowl, for example Arcadia FL.
