    hi group,my 2 peacocks are now 15 months old,and are now starting to grow a tail.
    i know that it takes 3 years for a full tail to develope,but was wondering,what size tail should i expect next year?

    Some of the 2 yr olds around my place had trains that were maybe 15 inches to two feet long total.

    Here is a photo of one of my males at 18 months old, he is growing new train now and it is the prettiest thing i ever seen [​IMG]

    My other male is getting his first train and he turned a year old in sept of this year .

    I think peas develope at a different rate sometimes and some may develope more of a train than others at the same age.

    Here is my boy Alto earlier this year with his two year old train. He is now currently growing in his three year old train. I am so proud of him!
