Maybe his peacocks are also destructive just like my Cats :D . My cats just love playing(ruining) with leaves,flowers etc. They would pluck all the leaves and flowers from potted plants and then start playing with them, So I have been wondering that if they don't start behaving then i'll have to give them away to my friends.

Peacocks destroy the seedlings so they will remain in the cage for two months.Some of my peacocks remain in their cages for the whole year.This is commonly called China lemon locally.
