    Very cute babies @ChristopherMic ! [​IMG] And Welcome to the Peafowl Department!

    I don't have personal experience with white peas, but the consensus seems to be that you won't be able to tell the sex until they are quite a bit older...

    Just for fun, you might have a browse on our BYC Peachick Chart...

    They need to be 6-8 months old to sex them, or now with DNA test.

    Too young to sex them. The only way to find out right now is DNA sex. Other than that you'll have to wait until they're around 8 months. When they're that old you can post more pictures here. I ask now, when they are about 8 months get an up close, clear picture showing the detail of the neck feathers. You can sex Whites based on their neck feathers.
