Do Peacocks Kill Their Young?


There’s no definitive answer to this question as peacocks (or peafowl as they’re also known) can be unpredictable when it comes to their young.

In some cases peacocks have been known to kill their own chicks or even attack and kill other peacocks.

However there are also plenty of reports of peacocks being loving and protective parents.

So it really depends on the individual peacock’s personality.

If you’re thinking of getting a peacock as a pet it’s important to do your research and be prepared for the possibility that your peacock may kill its young.

Peacocks are beautiful and majestic creatures but they can also be dangerous.

Do Male Peacocks Kill Their Young?

No male peacocks do not kill their young.

While it is true that some male animals will kill the young of their own species in order to bring the females into estrus and mate with them this behavior is not seen in peacocks.

In fact peacocks are known for being devoted fathers staying with their mates and offspring until the young are old enough to fend for themselves.

So if you’re ever worried about a peacock killing its young you can rest assured that it’s not likely to happen.
