Krishna was having the spiritual love with so called Gopanganas apart from his 8 queens ....... but he was not having the physical relation with any of those 16,000 Gopis ........ peacock is the only kind of bird they never keep physical relation(couplation) ........... the feather on the head of Srikrishna represents to the eternal love/Divine love .......

The peacock feather contains all the seven colours in it. The entire universe is covered by akasha(ether) which appears blue in day times and black in night. So lord Krishna is identified by both the colours 'Blue' & 'Black'. Krishna paksha in Indian calender means the days that follow after Full-moon day till the New-moon day i.e, the darker phase of 14 days of the moon.

Further, he wears the peacock feather which signifies that the entire range of colours (we mortal beings) is in him. In virtue he is colourless but in the day he appears blue, black in the night to our vision and in between make us discuss all this multi-coloured multi-perceptional views.

Sri Brahma Samhita, Verse 30:

"venum kvanantam aravinda-dalayataksam
BARHAVATAMSAM asitambuda-sundarashgam
kandarpa-koti-kamaniya-viesa-sobham
gov indam adi purusam tam aham bhajami" ...more
