POULTRY @ ivanonai xeograpnic society Painting from Life by Hashime Murayama INDIAN AND WHITE PEAFOWLS The peafowl is one of the most gloriously colored birds in all feathered creation. Of the two wild species, the Indian and the Green, the former (the peacock and peahen shown in the fore ground) is the one usually seen in captivity. The White variety probably came from matings of domesticated colored birds, since there appear to be no wild Whites. The beauty of any land scape setting is greatly enhanced by the presence of a proud peacock.
