    • Peafowl
      By Skye Urbach
    • Appearance
      Each feather has little hairs that make a pattern that looks like a large iridescent blue, purple, green, and bronze eye at the top of each feather.
      Iridescent means that something changes colors or reflects like a bubble.
      The hair like strands seem to change color.
    • Appearance
      A peacocks tail feathers range from 1.4- 1.6. meters in length. That is about as tall as me.
      Their body and tail can be 2.3 meters in length. That is about 1 and a half of me.
    • Appearance
      There are three species of peafowl
      Blue or Indian peafowl
      2. Green peafowl
      3. Congo peafowl
    • appearance
      Peacocks might have ornamental feathers on their heads, but not peahens. Peacocks and peahens have a small crest of feathers on their heads.
    • Appearance
      A peacocks fan of colorful feathers has 200 feathers that cover his real tail that he does not use for mating.
    • Not In Danger!
      Peacocks and peahens are not endangered, they are found in many places.
      They are found in India and zoos. This is a map of India and where they are found.
    • Diet
      When a peacock or peahen swallows the food goes into a pouch called the crop. The crop leads to the stomach.
    • Diet
      Peafowl don’t have any teeth. They swallow the pieces of their food whole.
    • diet
      Peafowl will eat anything they can find like wheat, rice, corn and flowers.
      In India, they even eat cobras!
    • diet
      When peafowl are in zoos they eat all day long.
      But, when peafowl are in the wild, they eat and drink in the morning and afternoon.
    • Life cycle
      At the start of breeding season, peacocks often live alone and then fight each other for land to live on with their families. They fight each other with the spurs on their ankles. The winner of the fight gets the land and then attracts a mate.
    • Life cycle
      Peahens can lay 3-5 eggs. They lay their eggs in grassy areas to hide the eggs.
    • diet
      Sometimes peacocks and peahens eat and chase butterflies in the fields in India.
    • Scientific name
      The scientific name for the Indian peacock is Pavo cristitus
    • Appearance
      The long and beautiful feathers of the peacock can reach the ground on each side .
    • Interesting facts
      Peacocks will do a dance to get a mate.
      [ Its fun to see ]
    • Interesting facts
      When a peacock calls it makes a unpleasant sound. A squawking sound that is often mistaken for a woman yelling.
    • Life cycle
      When a peacock is doing his mating dance he shakes his real tail.
      The real tail is a tail that is like the tail a duck might have. It is covered by the feathers that are colorful. When the color feathers are lifted up you can see the real tail.
    • Mating
      Peahens seem to pick their mate by how big the peacock is and how good he dances.
