    Hello again,
    The way you can tell how old he is (up to the age of 3-ish) is by his back/train feathers.
    Your boy still seems to have only barred (=black and white "striped") feathers on his back.
    By the time he turns 2, he will be getting some green feathers and eye feathers (why I said he was 1+).
    If you want a more accurate idea about his age, you could post a clear picture of his whole back.

    You seem to have a lot of pea questions!
    Have you taken a look at the Peafowl Stickies?
    They are full of all kinds of useful pea information:

    No need to apologize! Everyone has questions!
    The stickies are sometimes just a good place to find a lot of answers at once.
    But we peapeople are always happy to answer questions too! [​IMG]
    And we are always happy to see more pictures of beautiful birds like your new friends.
