    Does any body have a pictures of a Young Pied peacock, just starting to grow his train? I have a two year old. And I want to know what his train would start to look like. I've seen the older birds with the full train.

    It would help me alot.

    If it was picked off, it won't begin to grow back until they shed the train feathers at the end of the breeding season. At that point, he'll drop the picked feathers and begin to grow next year's train, which will take until the spring to grow. Keep it protected until then and you'll have a lovely male come breeding season next year!

    wait Just remembered that he just turned 2... So when does their train start to grow? first or second year? and Does it grow in the winter?

    Mine tend to only really grow in the third year. Both of the males I raised only had green tail feathers with zero eyes at two

    Quote:Yeah mine isn't near as long as lil blues either. But I am very lucky that he even has a train, allot of 2yr old peacocks don't! Lil Blue your SP is beautiful I love how he has long feathers shooting out of his little one. And Yoda your birds are very pretty! Here is my 2yr olds tain. He is a midnight white eye.
