I read through some other threads, and some said they have kept many peas together, but it didn't completely answer my questions. I had gotten 4 pea chicks (2 white and 2 that were "supposed" to be IB- think they are blue or green spalding or something other than just IB). They were all hatched abt 6/13-14 of this year. I *think* the 2 blue/green are both males due to the barring. The whites I can't tell, but I saw one of the whites (the smaller of the two that I thought might be female) on top of one of the blue/green ones. Now I am thinking at least 1 white maybe is a male. Now I was just given 2 IB peacocks (male) that are '08 hatches. Should I just wait until I know for sure what they are, then if I have, for instance, only one hen, separate the hen and one of the males to another pen, and leave the rest of the males together? When will I be able to tell what the white ones are? Should I rehome the 2 '08 peacocks and not keep them? Thanks!
