Trivia Question

Today I was looking through some exams and noticed this bonus question:

In an enclosure at the Forestry Farm you view peacocks and pigs.
There are 30 eyes and 44 feet. How many of each animal are there??

There were some very interesting answers I must say!

So, how are your math skills?
Can you figure it out and what method did you use??
Moto-Moto used trial and error but I came up with a formula!

Good luck!!

(Assume that both animals are not missing nor gained any body parts.)

Thank you for stopping by the nikiverse to validate my algebra. I am slowly getting back into the swing of things at work and couldn't resist your word problem.
