    Such a hard question! They are all so stunning.
    I know it is common but the IB is still the most awesome for me (I like blue), closely followed by the java

    I have always loved peafowl and never knew until recently that they came in such a variety of colors and patterns. I always knew about the regular blue peacocks and the white ones (I have a beautiful oil painting in my dining room of two male peacocks, one blue and one white, relaxing in a tree together). I have peacock everything in my house--even my bathrobe is covered in peacocks! And I also have an affinity for the peahens, though pictorially those are not nearly as "famous", so nice images of the hens aren't as easy to come by.

    Nonetheless, I Just wanted to comment that you folks here have some really beautiful birds & I am sitting over here envying you now.

    Surely there must be a peafowl that comes in "envy green".... ? [​IMG]

    I like Cameo's the best, but all colors are pretty cool. My friends raise them, and have almost every color. They are just getting into the purple's. Those are breathtaking!
