In the market for a peacock and my seller has only been getting females ( all the males he had were huge ) and I’m about to pull the trigger on a female instead of a male .. because I want a 2-3inch shrimp but are the only difference color? Do females get smaller than males or do they both reach the same size .. What are the main differences

Male peacocks are simply referred to as peacocks, whereas female peacocks are known as peahens. The differences between these birds include differences in size, color and behavioral traits. Male peacocks are generally larger, more colorful and display specific behavioral traits such as wing-shaking and train-rattling when mating.
