Peacocks are beautiful birds, originating from India, that have been domesticated for over 2,000 years. They are becoming increasingly popular throughout the rest of the world; however, problematically, they can become noisy. These magnificent creatures remain quiet unless they are threatened or it is their breeding season. Peacocks are not known for mingling well with other birds but this situation can easily be controlled. During their breeding season which lasts from the spring months until August, however, peacocks can become very noisy.
Keep your peacocks on the most isolated part of your property, away from your house and those of your neighbour, otherwise they could keep you up at night. Have a shelter for your peacock to lock them up at night, when you will be gone for long periods of time, or in extremely cold weather. Make sure the shelter is big enough for them to freely stand and move around.
Insulate the shelter as best as you can to keep any noise of the peacocks contained within the shelter area. Noise during the daytime should not be a big issue, but at nighttime both you and your neighbors want to sleep. For eight months you will probably only hear the peacocks occasionally, but during the breeding season you will hear them every night.
Ask your veterinarian if they know of any safe surgical procedures to silence your peacock. Most owners do not like this option but if you are serious about silencing your peacock it is a risky but sure way to silence your bird.
If there is an unwanted peacock coming to your garden, spray it with water any time it begins to cry to deter it from your property and from crying.
