A fowl invasion is driving people crazy near Casa de Shenandoah, the home of Wayne Newton.
Neighbors say peacocks are flying over the walls of Shenandoah and into their backyards. The birds are reportedly tearing up their roofs and leaving droppings everywhere.

Feathers, poop and eggs are all in Chris Juelke's backyard.

"It's just another chore I don't need to do," he said. "That's all. I just feel like I'm cleaning up his mess."

Juelke says the poop is making his dog sick and his backyard all brown.
Residents say the problem has been going on for years. They've talked with county officials, but have found no lasting solution. 
Animal Control can take the birds to a shelter if someone catches them.
