Ah, Friend Stefan, you keep me honest.  I think that it's not exactly 
clear what the County rules are about peacocks, which are properly Feral 
Domesticated Animals rather that Wild.  Maybe you can figure it out from 
this trial, involving bird lovers vs. pest haters in the City of Palos 
Verdes Estates and whether their Peacock Management Program was legal 
and enforceable.
