Q: What is the difference between feather and plumage ?
A: Both sentences are fine and mean the same thing. “Plumage” is not actually a very common word. Most people would only use “feathers”.

However, “the feathers that cover the body of the peacock” is somewhat long and probably too specific. It would be more natural as “the peacock’s feathers”.

As in, “The peacock’s feathers are colorful.”
