    Do you think a Peacock can tell if a Peahen has mated with another Peacock?.

    OK, lets say you have a Peahen in with another male then you deside you want her with another male so you swap her to the new pen, do you think he will treat her like a cheating wife? maybe she has the smell of the other male and the new male can smell it.

    Lets hear what you guys think, then I will tell you story behind this post.

    I don't think they could tell, unless the new male seen them toghther. And if he could tell I don't think he would think of her as a cheating wife maybe a divorsed one LOL.

    More about this story: I lost my 7/8 Spalding Pied male do to frost bite, So a breeder friend of mine out of Kansas loaned me a 7/8 Spalding White male along with a Spalding White hen now this hen was with another White male when we caught her. OK got them home put both in with my Spalding Pied hens (which he likes) (Pied male dead about a month) and he beat the dog out of the White hen. Now this could be a White thing I have had Blue males beat up White hens but never White on White.

    Nothin' a rattle can of Rustoleum green couldn't fix. Turn her into an Emerald and that white dude will bring her flowers. Sorry, couldn't resist.

    Out of 10 years of breeding Peafowl we have never had a White male beat up on anything, now we have had Blue and other color males about kill White hens but never White males.

    Quote:Why not the two Pied hens? and just the White one? Makes me wonder if they know.
