I have these two lovely birds that I can keep if they are hens, but if they are toms I can't. So I need some impartial opinions on their gender. Both birds are smaller than their hatchmates, and have smaller snoods. They both have fuzz on their heads, but they strut.

Here is Pumpkin

and this is Peaches

Well, I'd make a guess that the first one (Pumpkin) is a hen, but the last one (Peaches), is a male. I'm not 100% sure, though.

They are 4 1/2 months old. Pumpkin struts more than peaches, but they both strut more than my birds that I know are hens.

I still think that Peaches is a tom, and Pumpkin is a hen. But I'd wait a month or so and then see what they're like before getting rid of Peaches.
