White Peacock

Peafowl have featured throughout history and culture, with medieval knights taking a 'vow of the peacock', Shakespeare mentioning them in his plays, and William Morris including them in his designs.

White peafowl are a genetic mutation of the more common blue peafowl, rather than being albino.
