    I just bought a pair of peafowl the male is a black shoulder with alot of color and the hen is supposably the same. she is white with black patches through out with a little bit of green on the back of her neck about the size of a 50 cent piece. yesterday I introduced them to another hen and she started strutting? Do hens do that or is my peahen a peacock?
