    I saw my peacock displaying and trying to mate a chicken when he was just a few months old. So his behavior isn't unusual. It sounds like your peahen just isn't interested in him. Are they brother and sister? Neither one of them may be mature. It's hard to tell without seeing him.
    It's hard to tell how old she is but I would say at least 5 or 6 months. Can you ask the person you bought them from?

    By the way.... :welcome :frowglad you joined us.

    My peahen and peacock are just now 2 years old. They've been together since they were a few months old. But today I saw them mating for the 1st time. Peafowl aren't fully mature until they are 3 years old. My 2 year olds are still just young teenagers in human terms. It's possible for them to produce chicks but not as likely as it will be next year. It's possible that your pair just aren't old enough yet. :hmm
     
  5. They appear to be 2017 hatch and not of breeding age.

    my peacock seems very heahlty if there any medicament i can give so he\she keep the good health.

    its starting to warm in africa so if there any advice!
     
  7. There are a lot of good information topics in the stickies section at the top of the Peafowl Forum page. That would be a good place for you to start.

    Until now im just onion the drinking water and given it also to some food.

    This evening i been watching the coop from a webcam i see that the peahen want to sleep outside the coop when in last days only the peacock alone which sleeped outside.

    Since too days the turkey which still young started want to sleep outside near the peacock.

    But the peahen want always that the turkey between her and the peacock.

    I like the relation between peahen and the young trukey for me she seems like she was taking care of him because he fellowed her alots.

    The turkey i bought because of the time i had just the peahen and still didnt found the peacock so she was not allone for while

    Just fun things happenen
