Reproduction: The breeding season ranges from June to September in northern part of India, while it begins mainly in April and May in southern India. The female lays eggs in a scrape lined with grasses, leaves, sticks etc. on the ground. The semi-wild peafowl, however, may build the nests in buildings, forts etc. The clutch size varies from four to eight pale cream eggs. She alone incubates eggs for about a month. The young are pale buff. Behaviour: Peafowl are found in small flocks consisting of a single cock and three to five hens. In the wild, they come out into the forest clearings or agricultural fields in the early morning and in late afternoon to obtain foods. They roost in tall trees in order to protect from their natural predators. Life span: The life span of a peacock is about 20 years.
