    Hi members
    I noticed two very dark coloured peafowls

    I thought "Black Peafowls" do not exist.

    Too dark to be either Midnight or Buford Bronze.

    Had the black peafowls existed ???

    Hmmm, I am not sure I think those may be Bronze Blackshoulder but that is just a guess. But that is the breeder I bought my peafowl from. I have never seen those before. I could contact him and ask him which breeds those are!
