How long do peacocks live?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello,
I was wondering if peacocks live for 50 years. I love mine pied, and was hoping to hang out with him for a long time. But i read somewhere only 20 years.

1 young male, no idea what kind, he is kind of green, blue, brown and white. His name is "Mr. Inspector Henri Clouseau".

I had one live 25 yrs , and his last few years he grew a shorter tail, and was low on the pecking order, gave him away so don't know how long he lived.

My oldest is around 20. I file his beak every fall because he doesn't wear it down quickly enough. He's not very good at preening himself the past few years and his tail shows it  -  he doesn't get all the cellulose sheath off his train feathers and looks kind of ratty. When he preens, he sometimes breaks his train feathers off, and he never did that before. But he's healthy, active and chasing the girls. He doesn't fence-fight any more and that's a blessing. As long as he's happy, I'm happy.

Oh boy, now I am worried that 20 is not enough. It feels as if the peacock has become my soulmate, like the demons people had in Golden Compass movie.
Well thank you, if any of you have peacocks that are 40 years, let me know.
