I want another one but the personality is so varied, you never know what you'll get. These were raised together and got the same care and attention. Totally different result!

My vote is for Oliver, not Olive. The stance, legs, coloring and comb are all very masculine, but at 5 weeks I still wasn't sure about my girl. And Gilligan turned out to be a Gillihen!

If your bird hasn't started to lay eggs yet her peacomb should be a pale pink.  The cockerels will have a deeper color peacomb earlier than the girls.  My avatar is 5-months-old and you can see her peacomb is very pale still.  She didn't start laying until she was 7-months-old at which time her comb turned darker just before laying.  When ours takes a break from laying sometimes for 6 months, her comb will go pale again.
