At what age are peacocks unable to sire eggs?

At what age are peahens unable to lay fertile eggs?

Or can the male always fertilize but the females can't at some point?



So will I be able to have two 14 year old or older birds laying eggs?

I have heard that peacocks can fertilize the eggs up until they start losing their health. I believe they can be fertile into their late teens.

I have heard hens lay eggs through their teens.

From my research and talking with breeders of peafowl for many, many, many years, yes, your birds should be fine at 14 years old, as long as they are in good health. Laughing
