White Peafowl have their origins in India and Ceylon but have spread all over Europe and America. Although sometimes mistaken for albino birds, being an animal with no pigment or color, these all white birds have dazzling blue eyes and pink skin under the plumage. These birds are a common color mutation of the India Blue Peafowl, and will always breed true to their color.
White Peafowl will consume a diet consisting of seeds, grains, plants, insects, berries, and small reptiles, but also need a steady supply of standard game bird feed and a clean, freshwater source.
White Peafowl prefer a free-range environment, but can be kept in an aviary setting with plentiful shrubbery and trees, as they will nest on the ground but will also roost in the trees at night to protect themselves from predators. They will also need a large space as they tend to roam, as well as minimal shelter in the colder winter months.
White adult male peacocks will reach an average weight of 9 to 13 pounds and adult females weighing approximately 6 to 9 pounds. Females are mature at 2 years of age and males at 3. Clutches of 4 to 8 buff-colored eggs are laid between March and July with an incubation period of 28 days. Peachicks are born fully feathered weighing just over 3 ounces and are able to fly in just a few days. The lifespan of healthy peafowl in the wild averages about 20 years, but in captivity can reach 40 to 50 years of age.
