Peck is the tetartagonist of the Barnyard franchise. He is one of Otis' best friends. He fought during the Vietnam War and suffers from PTSD.


Peck is typically gentle, friendly, and very intelligent, although he often has war flashbacks. No matter what ideas the other animals come up with, Peck is quick to point out the flaws because he was a very good combat strategist.

He is fully aware of Freddy's carnivorous thoughts and it obviously makes him very nervous, but doesn't effect their relationship in any way because Freddy knows Peck is combat tested. Peck does not forgive, and he does not forget. 


Peck is a red (seemingly nude) Rhode Island red rooster. He has blue eyes, a round-ended sharp tongue, feathery arms, a red snide, and red feathers atop his head. He has a round upper beak and a skinnier lower beak where his red snide is. His last feature are two skinny legs. Practically, all of him is thin because of lack of food (he was a POW).

Human disguises



  • In the Back at the Barnyard online game Boy Tipping, it is revealed that Peck is the fastest and stealthiest.
  • Even though Peck doesn't usually have teeth, in a few early episodes and a brief scene in the movie, he can be seen with a pair of chompers. 
  • Peck is unique, as he is the only non-mammal in his group of friends. 
  • Sometimes, Peck tries to explain some things to the gang, but they usually don't care.
