    I believe the third one in the back is a cock as well but it's harder to make out.

    The ones in the back (behind the ducks) are definitely pea fowl. You would probably do better to post photos in the "Peafowl thread," just put that in the search box and it will come up for you. They know much more about peafowl than I would.

    Oh! Now I see it. Well, barely. It sure is shaped like a boy but it's hard to make out much else...

    I didn't see a third one anywhere. And duh, I should know by now the peacocks have the beautiful coloring, peahens - boring. except for the white peahens - gorgeous
