    India Blue is a species. It's the common species(and color) "everybody knows". Blue neck, green tail on the males.

    Really, it should be "Indian peafowl" for species name.. the "Blue" part is just to describe what "color" it is.. so everybody will know what you are talking about.

    The other species available are the Green species(and subspecies). They are very different looking plus have a different personality than Indian peafowl.

    Spalding are a mix of Indian and Green peafowls. Highly variable, no two look exactly the same.. These basically are for people who can't afford or can't have pure Greens due to too cold winters.. or people who might like the Green look but in different colors such as white spalding, etc.
