this is my one and only peafowl, Peabody. He/she was a month old yesterday. I hatched him/ myself from incubator. Could one of the peafowl veterans help this amateur out with by telling me this Peachicks color and would anyone like to take a guess at gender though I am sure he/she is too young. Thank you all so much in advance.

Thank you. I looked as some pics and charts and thought that it might be but seeing as it's my first and it was from an unmarked egg I incubated I was unsure. Should I possibly be able to tell gender of a black shoulder at around 3 months or so? Thanks

The more experienced people can probably help you... my experience with black shoulder is limited to one chick that I raised.

It is indeed a Black Shoulder pattern and most likely either Purple or Cameo. It could be one of the sex linked colors or even Spaulding because of the light tan colors. Yes you will be able to tell its sex at three months for sure. Is there any way you can find out what the parents are?

and Welcome to the Peafowl group! Hope you continue to have a wonderful time here! We're glad to have you join us!

As I'm not the best at peafowl identification all I can say, in agreement with @casportpony and @KsKingBee , is that your chick in indeed a Black Shoulder.
