    When do peacocks reach full maturity?

    Also what is the life expectancy?

    Life expectancy? I have some near 12 years old, not sure how much longer they will last?

    Peacocks won't have a full train until 3 years old, but they should be able to mate at 2 years old.

    They can live around 20 years or longer. They can still be good breeders even if they are that old.

    2 years old for the calling, but they might not sound so good until they are 3 haha.
