    my wife an I have gotten Peafowl from so people there are already white ones with black specs but weve had one hatch that is albino with pink eyes pink feet and to beat all a pink beak. Locals around here have never seen one and i have looked online and have not found one yet How rare is this and will it live a normal life its 5 months now?

    Real albino peafowl are rare. They can be a little more fragile than others, but well cared for birds lead a normal life. Most times they show up from line bred birds. Just another one of those recessive characteristics that takes the combination of the right parents to appear.
