I keep reading when they begin breeding, is that when they lay eggs..or like chickens, their is an average age when they start laying?

Also, what do peafowl eggs taste like?

Thank u in advance

They are supposed to lay roughly every other day and the breeding season depends where you are. Also eating a peafowl egg would be like eating $15

Lay late spring until summer.

The eggs taste alot like chicken ,turkey,quail,pheasant, eggs.  Nothing like waterfowl eggs.


Yes i will eat a cracked egg, or very early ones , or late ones after the peacocks have drop their train.

Two or three years old

My 2 year old peahen began laying in March of this year. She laid 9 eggs, now nothing since the end of March. I have had no luck hatching the eggs, but know they were fertile, because one broke and had a tiny chick inside. Will she begin laying again this year? I wish I could find a buyer for the eggs rather than try to hatch- too nerve racking for me.
