Japanese word for 'peahen'

Situation: Y is having an argument with his sword, which is rather vain, reflected in the fact that part of its name translates to 'peacock'. As the argument escalates, Y ends up calling his sword a peahen, sending it into a sulk. He later says it again, in order to call out as little of his sword's power as possible.

What I want to know is if there is a distinction between 'peacock' and 'peahen' in Japanese. If so, what is it in romaji?

Searched: several online dictionaries/translation sites. Those that gave a result in romaji didn't recognise 'peahen' as a valid word in English.
