    This beautiful creature appears as an extremely large pheasant whoes plumage can range from blue and green, to gold and green, to even pure white. The females of the species are much duller in color, often a lusterous brown, tan and gold with more colorful highlights. Brushing the ground behind the males are fantastic tails (trains) up to 3-6 feet in length, most with strange eye-like spots of scintilating blue, purples, oranges and blacks.

    At the end of a small, sharp head is a curved beak. Its dark eyes are surrounded by white skin and sport elaborate lashes. From the top of its it head sprout a black crest.

    Combat
    Peafowl tend to flee creatures as large or larger than they, though small creatures they ward off with blows of their beaks and fluffing of their feathers.

    Fanning (Ex): As a full round action a peafowl may spread their tail feathers to impressive heights, becoming much larger in appearance. While fanning, a peafowl is considered a Medium creature for the purpose of the Intimidation skill.

    Peafowl grant a +3 bonus on Diplomacy checks.

    Guineafowl appear as small pheasant-type birds of thick grey plumage speckled with black and white spots. They are streamlined in body and with featherless, wrinkled grey and white necks. From the top of their tiny, narrow heads is a large, bony protrusion. They have thick, hooked orange beaks with a pair of smooth wattles.

    Guineafowl are swift, hyperactive birds who enjoy great congregations, though individual flocks stay together within their coveys. They are confrontational and agressive, chasing and attacking one another, and any other creatures that comes too close.

    They are particularly raucuous in tone, and their screechings and whistlings can be heard for miles. If a guineafowl sees danger it lets loose a particularly grating call that all other guineafowl in hearing repeat.

    Combat
    Guineafowl tend to flog creatures en masse up to a size larger than themselves, pecking and slamming into them. If the creature is larger than themselves they tend to charge at their opponent and then swerve away, trying to intimidate it. If this does not prove successful the creature is normally left alone.

    Limited Flight (Ex):
    A guineafowl may remain in flight for a number of rounds equal to twice their Constitution modifier before being forced to glide, descending 10 feet for each 30 feet forward.

    Skills: Guineafowl gain a +2 racial bonus to listen and spot checks, a +4 bonus to balance, escape artist, hide, and survival checks bonus to survival checks. While in tall undergrowth this hide bonus increases to +6.

    Guineafowl as Familiars
    Guineafowl grant a +2 bonus to Initiative.

    A gamecock is a lithe, agile fowl bred for their quickness and ornery temperment for use in fights. Their heads are small and narrow to a curved beak, and their wattles and combs are very unpronounced, having mostly been bred out of the stock as to remove an object for the rooster's opponent to grab onto. Its legs are thickly scaled, and its talons sharpened. From the inner sides of the leg grow two vicious, several inch long spurs that have had razor-sharp bits of metal fitted over to inflict more cruel damage.

    Combat
    Gamecocks are naturally bluffers, pretending to peck the ground and search for food, sometimes even walking off, before suddenly flying into the air to strike its opponent with its flurry of beak, claws and spurs. They lift their feathers high and appear to increase in size to further intimidate.

    Crow (Ex): As a full-round action, a gamecock can utter a piercing crow that will awaken those that slumber naturally within 100 feet and can be heard out to a mile or two.

    Ferocity (Ex): A gamecock is such a tenacious combatant that it continues to fight without penalty even while disabled or dying.

    Limited Flight (Ex): A chicken is a poor flyer and generally can "fly" for short distances. It can use its flight ability to prevent taking falling damage or to fly upwards up to 20 feet. The chicken must always land at the end of its flight each round.

    Pounce (Ex): When a gamecock makes a charge, it can follow with a full attack, including a spur attack (+5 melee, 1d3-4 damage, 19-20/x2).

    Skills:
    Gamecocks have a +2 racial bonus on intimidate and bluff checks, a +4 bonus to balance, escape artist, hide and spot checks, and a +6 bonus to survival checks. While in tall undergrowth this hide bonus increases to +6.

    Gamecocks As Familiars
    A gamecock grants a +3 bonus to Bluff checks.

    That's factored in, a normal pun only deals 2d12 pun damage, as puns have a 18-20/X4 critical this was the result.

    Only peaCOCKs can fan, and I THINK they MIGHT only have the feathers during the mating season, but I don't know (check wikipedia, I am too lazy right now). peaHENs are rather drab and have MUCH shorter tails.

    Mating season is 24/7 pretty much. Hens don't lay eggs in the winter, but the males are always ready to get it on reguardless. They also keep their tails all year.

    Nice. I bet they make for good hunting, and it'd be cool if you could make the feathers into some headdress or another.
