    Yes your male is not a yearling.[​IMG] Looking at his train I would say he is a three year old. He could be a two year old that is almost three, but I would guess three. The peahen looks like a mature one, as for age I have no idea maybe three but I can't say I am for sure.

    Here is what a yearling male looks like for reference:

    Here is the same peacock now older with more color, he isn't three yet he is almost two now.

    Hope this helps.[​IMG]

    I would think around 2 to young 3, he still has not lost some of the juvenile splotches on the black and become more "put together" in his colors. Pretty birds. [​IMG]

    The blackshoulder male looks like a 09 hatch bird he will be 2 next breeding season so that make him still a yearling. If he was a 08 hatch he would not have all the white splotches on him. MinxFox don't let the size of the train fool you I have seen a lot of coming 2 year old with trains this size or bigger
