I just wanted to know is there a way of telling how OLD peacocks or peahens are?( apart from tail length)

I know about tail length etc but I was wondering about at the other end of the spectrum like older age? Do the peacocks get ruffled feathers or slower etc…Does anyone own really old peafowl??

I have a male whom I believe is quite old… I DO NOT know Wayne's age. We have had Wayne for 4 -5 years however he was full grown when we received him, and the previous owners had no idea either.
Are there signs that one peacocs is getting old ??
I know they can live up to 50 years…especially in a caring and loving environment..

Yes the legs are a good sign of age a bit like a human face
