Java Green Peafowl

These long-legged, tall-crested birds inhabit the densest thorn and bush undergrowth of evergreen forests.

In the early mornings, groups are found on the banks of small clear rivers drinking and preening. Termites are a favorite and days are often spent feeding near large colonies of termite mounds. After returning to the river in the late afternoon, they gather in small groups to roost in the tallest dead trees deep in the jungle forest.

Tying with Java Green Feathers

Noticably longer legged than the India Blue, the Java Green has a pronounced green hue. Parallel uses make most of the feathers from this bird interchangeable with the Blue. However, the crest feathers are vastly different offering the creative tier or crafter more options.

Gone is the bright blue breast being replaced by “scaled” feathers that have a dark blue center with greenish coppery fringes getting larger toward the abdomen.

The eyed feathers of the train are different too, being smaller, finely fibered and different coloration. A beautiful artistic salmon fly is the Green Mansions by Paul Schmookler in Rare And Unusual Vol. 1.

Gone too are the mottled brown shoulders, replaced with dark feathers tinged with blue-green. Crafters and jewelry makers will find new and exciting uses for these feathers.

Neck, & Scaled Feathers

Everyone is familiar with lemon wood duck,however, as in peafowl, breeders have been selective breeding for different color mutations. These feathers may not all be lemon but they have the same vermiculated pattern.

Train and Tail Feathers

With all the inbreeding and crossing, finding a good pure golden is getting hard. Notice the pure red. Brilliant and no yellow bar like the male on the sidebar. Wings are solid blue, crest is long and the throat is light in color. This is a nice example of a pure bird.

This is a nice breeding age java hen. As you can see, the neck feathers have the nice emerald green coloration.

Although not the best skining job, this bird is in good feather.

Peafowl

In their pure form there are only 3 species of peafowl; the blue, the green, and the congo. In captivity however, breeding enthusiasts have created close to 225 color mutations that range from white to a very dark colored bird called "midnight". Coming up with names for new colors is as difficult as coming up for names for new paint colors.
