    I have four peachicks that are about 8 weeks old. Three of them are marked alike and one different. I am posting a pic that has one of each. Can anybody tell me which is which?? Thank you!

    Hi klcyt,
    Male peachicks have more orange primary flight feathers and barred backs while female have browner primary flight feathers and plainer brown backs.

    Can you please send me the photoes of opened wings of your male peachick.

    Cheers
