Pea Fowl

The Blue (or Indian) Peafowl has been kept and reared in captivity for over 2000 years. They nest on the ground, but prefer to roost in trees. They are incapable of long flights - Peafowl are native to southern India. Most utter a wailing cry, especially before rainfall.

In the courtship display, the huge tail coverts are elevated to form a massive lacy fan.  They flutter wings & prance their feet.  The peahen should lay between three to five brownish buff eggs.
