Help me sight sex my new peachicks

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So, I'm completely new in the peafowl world.
I got two peachicks from the z[IMG][IMG]oo I work in, each from a different peahen.
I read about sight sexing peachicks but I need to be sure.
Can you peafowl masters help?

You can't sex them until they're about 3 weeks old or older.

You might look here to see if you get any tips:

These might also give you some clues:

 

 

You might also do some digging into the helpful pea information available here, lots of it! Depending upon the situation, many peapeople don't recommend putting peababies with other poultry because peas are so susceptible to disease.

Visual sexing cannot be done reliably until about 3 months reliably. Some people go by leg length or color but this is not reliable.

As a guess I would say male but it's not the most accurate at this age. If there were other peachicks to compare makes things easier.

Early .... Males = long head, long leggs, long toes and long neck !
