There is a color called purple in peafowl, but they don't have what I would call purple feathers. They're still pretty, though.

I'm looking at this bird on my phone, so I might be missing details, but I don't see any barring across its back or shoulders. That would make it a hen, not a cock.

@casportpony what do you think?
