Re: OT, new peacocks ()

John K Jordan
Peafowl - all of them

Peahens - females
Peacocks - males

Peachicks - little ones

Peafowl eggs - eggs. One will make an omelet, perhaps an expensive omelet - eggs for hatching can be $30 each with no guarantee.

But you can say "peacock" for everything and everyone will understand.
