Males are bright blue with yellow/Orange along the lower body. The tail is blue with yellow/Orange lines mixed with it. Some males start out mostly darker blue, then show yellow on the tail and body. A few changes to orange on the tail and body. Others retain the yellow rather than the orange color. Females are cream with brown stripes. A few females have black stripes rather than brown ones. Males are slow to color and dominant males will not let sub-dominate males color. This peacock can be slow to show color but is well worth the wait. An exceptional male may develop orange/Red color on part of the body and tail.
The second photo is a part color male.
