The White Peacock or White Peafowl

Updated: Sep 17, 2019

The female of a Peacock is called Peahen. Baby peafowl are called peachicks.

The females are not as colorful as males. Occasionally, peafowl appear with white plumage, but they are not albinos, although albino peafowl do exist, they have a genetic mutation that is known as Leucism, which causes the lack of pigments in the plumage. A white peacock is technically a genetic variant of the Indian Blue Peafowl.
