Unless you are going to somehow stunt them physically (which does not change the genotype), you will need a dwarf mutation. That is a chance thing with any organism, so unless someone discovers that sort of mutation and propagates it, I think you are out of luck.

I have seen a dwarf male. At age 3, he had no train, but at 4, he seems to have one starting to come. He is approx 2/3 size (maybe a bit less?)

the problem with larger peacocks is space. i want a peacock flock that can fit on almost any property.

Solution :
1 - expect .... THE spontaneous mutation one on millions of birth.
2 - a genetic transplantation ... long time .... lots of money !
In the genome of Chihuahua find the gene responsible for dwarfism and inject them into the genome of the peacock.

or ....
