What are Peacock Tail Feathers?
Peacock tail feathers, also know as the train, are made of keratin and are not very flexible, so they cannot be bent back into their original position. At the top of each peacock tail feather you will see a round, jewel-toned ocellus or eyespot. The ocellus comes from the Latin word "oculus," which actually means "eye." This iridescent spot adds to the exotic nature of the plumes. These tail feathers are specially structured to ensure they reveal each brilliant ocellus whenever the bird fans them out, which happens by combining multiple layers of feathers on top of each other.
Peacock Shedding Their Train
Peacocks shed their train every year after mating season. This means that their peacock tail feathers can be gathered and sold without the birds coming to any harm. So you do not have to worry about peacocks being killed for their feathers. The average lifespan of a peacock in the wild is about 20 years.
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 pea-chicks.
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."
