    Hello folks, got a couple of 6 month old peafowl. This is my first round with peafowl so could really use some assistance sexing them. They look identical, so I would like to either get them some girlfriends or boyfriends shortly. I appreciate the assistance and your input.

    @trueblue8364
    We can probably help you find those peaboys! [​IMG]
    It looks like you are in Texas? Perhaps you are within range of @barkerg or @zazouse ?

    You need a 2 years old peacock !... one year older than your peahen !
    First eggs in 2018 and the peacock will be 3 years old ... = adulte ... 100% fertile!

    Great tip! Ever have problems introducing new peafowl to a pen? Birds pecking on new birds etc?
