    Hello chickenlady91 welcome to the pea portion of BYC and congrats for a beautiful chick. Good pics but, unfortunatley we need views of the back and shoulders to help determine sex. As long as the chick is old enough the pro's here can pick out a boy or girl for you, please keep us posted as it grows and remember, pics or it didnt happen,[​IMG].

    Thank you. I will get photos of the back and shoulder for you tomorrow, I was told by the person whom I got it from that chest is the best way to sex.

    Thanks so much! A few more questions... Can you tell from this photo if the pea fowl in the front is a male or female and is it a India Blue or not?
