Below is what the Ulamas gotta say about eating peacock meat:
And it does not come under the same heading as the things prohibited in the hadeeth: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade the eating of every animal that has fangs and every bird that has talons. Narrated by Muslim, 3574.
And it is not harmful, so it is permissible to eat it. And Allaah knows best.
- Shaykh Dr. Khaalid al-Mushayqih”
So basically for the Sunnis, peacocks are Halal. But the Shias, they’ve got two opposing fatwas, as below:
Syed Khoi – Maslah/Rule No : 2633 pg 391
Syed Sistani – Maslah/Rule No : 2699, pg 398
So if you are a Shia, you should check with your Imam. For the Sunni, you may increase the population of peacock if you wanna reduce the price. Well, anything will become cheaper if produced in millions (I prefer fish and chips, but would try grilled peacock meat if it’s FREE. I’m so cheap…).
