This is my first experience with peafowl and I purchased these little guys from a local breeder who said they were a male and a female. He also stated that if I ended up with two males or two females he would trade out for whatever I needed to make a pair. They are about 6 weeks older than when I first got them so I figured someone on here would be able to help me figure it out! Oh also, I have seen the darker one "strut" with his/her feathers puffed out like a peacock, but I have read the girls will do that also? Thanks!!
