    But question, Is it normal for a Peacock's plumage to be more colourful, Like a richer Blue?

    If you are talking about the neck feathers than they do seem to get a richer blue coloration when they get older. My peacock Alto is getting his adult feathers and I have noticed that his blue neck got even more vibrant and even his barred wing feathers have more of a hint of blue shine in the black bars.
