Interesting comments Chris. I recently spent a week on KI (will get around to 
writing up a report at some stage). Didn't see any peacocks, but did see a 
single Turkey wandering across the road south of Penneshaw. Could not see any 
houses about and I was wondering whether there was a feral population present. 
Probably not but do I tick it (not really a drama as I have seen them on 
Flinders Island anyway).
I have also seen feral Peahen (with chicks) near Licuala Forest walk near 
Mission Beach well in the bush away from any houses.
