    I just got my 4 new Peachicks in the mail today. I got 3 Purples & 1 Silver Pied. I need help with the sex's of them. Sorry for all the pics wanted to make sure I got plenty of pics of them. There supposed to be a month old maybe older. Hopefully they can be sexed.

    most peacocks cant be sexed till about three month some like the white is a year.so it is prob to early to sex but i will let the experts handle it there are alot of great people on here that will help trust me they help me out all the time.

    Yes 3 purples, white is hint of being split white or pure pied.. if don't know parent colors/genetics, can be impossible to tell until breeding. And that's a silver pied too.

    A bit young to tell yet, it's mostly the feathers that come off the back and neck that helps with sexing.. 1 and 2 seem to have minimal markings so far, MAYBE females, and 3 has markings so maybe male, but really best to wait until feathered out more and show patterning just like on Phage and Deerman's pics.

    Chicks seem healthy! [​IMG]

    Thanks, for your help.

    I really just wanted to make sure that they were the right colors.

    Sexing can wait. I will update when they get a bit older.

    Thanks for your help.
