The peafowl is a species of pheasant. Males, known as peacocks, have bright, iridescent feathers that they display to court females and scare off predators. Their colourful eye patterns also make them popular among fortune tellers and royalty as symbols and decorations. Some cultures also breed white peafowls. A typical peafowl is 3-1/2 feet tall and weighs about ten pounds.
