The Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA (PHS/SPCA) is seeking adopters for two pairs of domesticated peacocks. Each peacock pair includes a male and a female and the adoption fee for a pair is $40.
Peacocks have been kept as pet birds for thousands of years. The stunning plumage of the males have long inspired artists since ancient times. Peacocks require at least 80 square feet per bird, and ideally a specialized habitat such as a tree house to provide shelter and protection from predators.
Peacocks should be fed mixed grains, such as turkey or chicken feed, along with nuts, green vegetables and fruit. They will also eat insects, slugs, frogs and lizards, making for excellent organic pest control.
Unlike most animal shelters, PHS/SPCA accepts animals of all kinds of domesticated animals, including but not limited to dogs, cats, rabbits, reptiles, goats, pigs and even peacocks.
PHS/SPCA also has a Wildlife Care Center where they treat and rehabilitate wild animals. To learn more about adopting a peacock pair, please call PHS/SPCA at 650-340-7022.
