This is the most common and widely recognized peafowl breed. Males have iridescent blue and green plumage with elongated "eye" markings on their train feathers. Indian Blue peafowl are native to India and Sri Lanka.
A mutation of the Indian Blue, the Black-Shouldered variety has similar markings but with reduced or absent blue coloring. Instead, they have black shoulders and are often referred to as "Black-Shouldered Peafowl."
This variety lacks the usual colorful plumage and instead has all-white feathers. White peafowl can have blue eyes and are often highly prized for their unique appearance.
These peafowl exhibit a pale, pastel-like coloring compared to the typical vibrant hues. They display softer tones of blue, green, and tan, creating a softer and more delicate appearance.
The Bronze variety displays a rich and deep coppery-bronze coloration in their plumage. They have a stunning metallic sheen, especially in sunlight.
While still part of the Indian Blue species, Purple peafowl have a deeper, more vivid purple hue in their plumage, adding an extraordinary richness to their appearance.
These peafowl have distinctive white feathers around their eyes, which create a unique and striking contrast against their colorful plumage.
Pied peafowl exhibit a combination of white and colored feathers in irregular patches across their body. This creates a beautiful mosaic-like pattern, making each bird visually unique.
