    I have a feeling that these are both female. But, just thought I'd check in with the experts [​IMG]

    My gramma had over 30 peafowl on her acreage in Colorado, 6 of which were the new babies. She died in July and I wanted to bring some her babies home with me, so I picked the 2 that happened to get caught. So I brought them home at the beginning of August & they were approximately a month & a half old (nobody really knows for sure exactly cause they were free-ranging birds) So...they're maybe around the 4 month mark. If anyone has a better guess - go for it.

    Looks like girls. The good thing is that males are usually easier to find.

    Quote:that is true on blues hens ...best way to tell is the hens have lost the barring on the back feathers.

    Does work on other colors , barring does unless they are greens or real high % spaldings
