Peacock Feathers

Peacock Tail Feathers and the Ocellus

With its massive tail and iridescent colors, the peacock and their tail feathers has fascinated people for centuries and we are still learning the animal's secrets. A study recently published in the British Journal of Animal Behavior explains that when a peacock fans its ornate train of tail feathers for the female, their feathers quiver. This emits a low-frequency sound which is inaudible to humans. Depending on whether they want to attract females from a long or short distance, they can change the sound by shaking different parts of their feathers. Only the males are actually peacocks. The collective term for the bird is “peafowl.” Females are peahens and babies are peachicks.

One of our specialties is peacock tail feathers. With an assortment of lengths that come in natural, bleached tan or dyed, we are sure you'll be happy with these beautiful products. An iridescent effect is created when light passes through the round “eye” or “ocellus."

Information About Peacocks

Peacocks are part of the phasianidae family, which also includes the pheasant and turkey. The color of the female is mainly brown, while the male is known for the stunning blue shades and a large, unique fan or “train” of feathers. This elaborate arrangement may contain over 100 feathers. Following mating season, the male will shed the feathers from the train. This makes it easy to amass the feathers and never touch the bird.

The male peacock sheds its tail feathers each year by the end of summer. The molting is similar to that of a snake’s skin. The detaching of the feathers is caused by hormones and transpires just after mating season. Luckily, new feathers will grow. And they will be bigger and better than before. These peacock tail feathers make for a great addition to costumes and MSG has everything you need!

Peacock tail feathers have a round, jewel-toned “eyespot”. They are naturally designed to be vividly shown whenever this animal spreads or fans his tail. When sunlight passes through the feathers, it creates an iridescent effect.

Peacock tail feathers are also know as the "train" and have not only quill feathers, but also elongated upper tail coverts. Interesting fact: peacock tail feathers will fall off by the end of summer, but eventually grow back seven months later. This corresponds to the peacock's mating season. And each time they grow back, they return longer and fuller.
