    I'm thinking this one is a hen. I have another one that looks the same. They are 11 weeks old.

    This one is 9 weeks. I'm thinking a male?

    And I also have these two:

    They are 6 weeks old. Are they too young to tell? They look like the same sex, whatever they are.

    1. Peahen
    2. Peacock

    The last two might be two females? The one on the right I think is a peahen and the left one could be a peahen but I am not sure. I say peahen because the end of the feathers have that one dark bar with a light creme dot on the end.[​IMG]

    Yes, now I am starting to think that the two young ones are hens. It is getting easier to tell. My mom says, "Great, we have 5 "peacocks " and only one of them is pretty." [​IMG] I don't really mind. I know that males are much easier to find than hens. [​IMG] I've really been wanting a pied. So maybe I can use the excuse that I need another male!!!
