    Hi, I bought 3 peacocks last year hoping for at least one male. It turns out they are all hens. One IB, one purple blackshoulder, and one piebald. My wife loves purple so we would love to get a 2-3 year old male that we can breed with the others. We would prefer a midnight cock but any type of purple would work for us. If anyone can help, please let me know.

    both of the above suggestions are good however you should consider that if a midnight male is bred to anything but another midnight or a bird that is split to midnight you won't get any more midnights. If you get a purple male you can get purple hens from him no matter what he's bred to.
