Is peacock meat legal in CA/USA?

Lynndsey Rigberg | Aug 25, 201107:10 PM


I recently ordered another peacock from Exoticmeats for a very special dinner party coming up (they need 14 days notice).

When I told my dinner guests that I was serving peacock, a couple of them freaked out. They said it was ILLEGAL???!!!

According to the Exoticmeats website, it says that it is legal...but dang it if I can't find anywhere else that can confirm the legality of peacock meat in CA...or the US!

Clearly, I've already purchased this peacock ($500!) so there's no way about that. I'm serving this bird.
However, I feel that if I can prove to my guest that the peacock is legal, they are sure to eat it.

Thank you! I would appreciate it if any of you have insight on this matter!
