    This is the only Peafowl that I have ever seen that was not a wild- or white-morph. Can someone please tell me which breed it is a member of?

    Is she possibly a black shoulder?

    I have no clue. There were definitely no signs about her on the cage that she was in.

    Indian Blue black shoulder hen.
     
  7. What is the difference between a Black Shoulder hen and an Indian (India) Blue Black Shoulder hen?

    Blackshoulder is just the pattern, and many times we just use that implying its Indian Blue, but its more correct to say the color and pattern, Indian Blue Blackshoulder.
     
  9. I thought he was trying to be technically correct but shouldn't you say India instead of Indian?
