    Thank you! Me and Kathy were suspecting that all along. As two of them have been double the weight of other since one week post hatch. The female is the one I assisted and almost lost but had a miraculous recovery.

    I think that Black Shoulder is a male because I do see some dark black feathers in there but I would like another person who has raised Black Shoulder peafowl longer than me to confirm or disagree. The Indian Blue is a male.

    I think that is a Cameo hen. That's is my guess but I've never raised them yet but hopefully someone here can help you.

    I believe that is a Guinea chick which I have no experience with.
    I know this is a peachick but I don't know if it's a Black Shoulder Cameo, peach, or Cameo. I've never raised Cameos or Peach peafowl before.
