    A few weeks ago i posted pics of my 4 peafowl - first ones I've ever had. The consensus was they were all 4 males. My pictures weren't very good, and these pics aren't much better. These birds are one week shy of 5 months old. 3 of them now have very prominent barred feathers on their backs and one less so. I should note that one of these birds is a week younger than the others, but I'm hoping maybe the smaller less barred one, might be a hen? And you say ...

    Bird in the foreground is the one in question.
