This is the best shot I could get.  I don't know if you can tell anything from this.  I will try to watch the next display.  I can gobble at my wild turkeys and they will all start showing off.  Peacocks must be smarter

That's an Indian Blue Black Shoulder peahen. Peahens will sometimes fan against other hens. My Black Shoulder and Spalding peahen fan at each other.

I do not at this time but be advised to try and find one local and fast, the males train is about grown out by now and it will get destroyed in transport. July would be the best month to consider shipping a a mature rooster as they will be starting to lose the train feathers. Mine start even earlier because the guineas are rough on a rooster and usually have the free range birds tails ripped out by then,😂.

Where are you located?
