The feather of the peafowls is consist of tiny crystal-like structures. And the color of the feather is depended on the space between these crystal-like structures.

The length of the feathers on peacocks can grow 6 feet long. Only males have colorful feathers.

Peacocks are not only beautiful colorful birds but they are also clever. They send fake copulative mating calls to attract the Peahens.

Like humans peahen also get attracted by the peacock with good size, color, and quality feathers.

Peacock is polygamous and can have 2 to 5 peahen partners.
