Description
Part of the pheasant family, a female peafowl is known as a peahen. Unlike their male counterpart the peacock, peahens are mostly brown with white chest feathers, and head crests. Peafowl are polygamous and, after mating, she goes off to lay her eggs and raise her chicks alone. In this color woodcut, Hans Frank has depicted the Indian species of the peahen native to India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.
