    Hi Nemo,
    It looks like a very beautiful Blackshoulder Peahen. She is likely blue in color and blackshoulder is her pattern. You can get some info on colors/patterns here on BYC sticky posts ( a good primer for peafowl) or the United Peafowl Association website or UPA on FB. If you have specific questions, the BYC community can probably help with some guidance.

    Hi. You peafowl isnt White at all. It is, as was already stated, a very nice looking Black Shouldered Peahen. The Black Shouldered is a color phase of the India Blue race of peafowl which has been known for at least a couple of hundred years. The Black Shouldered are actually my favorite of the peafowl. I hope you have or will soon get her a mate; either a Black Shouldered or India Blue male will do, but you will only have B/S offspring if the male is B/S also.
