    Well I remember a little bit of it, but not enough to say. Its a pheasant that has feathers that look like a peacock. They are pretty rare and can cost a small fortune. They are very hard to raise from what Ive heard and read. Thanks............

    Males are pea cocks and the hens are called pea hens. A pheasant is not a peacock. There is a pheasant that looks like a peacock, feather wise. You should be able to find the bird on feathersite.com...............
