I was under the impression that peafowl do not reproduce until they are two years old..

Today I was told that they have to befive years old..

what is the real age ?

I think it depends on what kind of peafowl you have. From what I've read, the blue species breeds earlier than the green species, and the spaldings are somewhere in the middle.

Based on the higher price for greens, I'd suspect that the one you hatched is most likely of the blue species. I don't think most breeders would let eggs from green peafowl out of their sight -- unless they were sold.
