    I have 2 peachicks, we are not sure how old they are. I am guessing 3-4 weeks. How old do they need to be before we will be able to determine their sex? I have seen one of them flipping up their feathers today, I am not sure if he was startled or bucking up the other peachick or a keet?

    I have had good luck telling the sex between 2 and 3 weeks after that I have to wait till they hit 4 months.
    Can you post up some photos of your pretties?
