    Ok I was thinking about getting a Blackshoulder Peacock, but I don't want 3 males if I already have 2. I have never heard him/her call and she/he has no spurs. She/he is a yearling.

    Here she/he is with my BS peahen...

    She/he was starring at a dove ontop of the support pole.

    Here you can see that there is no spurs. Also she has really jagged tail feathers unlike my BS hen whos are perfectly rounded.

    And here she/he had her neck feathers up cause I was cooing and she/he would go Pea-onk...

    Thanks!
