    Can someone please help me figure out what sex these two are? This is our first time raising peafowl. They were a birthday present for my daughter. I have spent countless hours reading so much information on them and combing through pictures trying to figure it out. When I think I've made my mind up, I read or see something else that makes me doubt it.

    Thank you! That is what I thought but then I read an article that said females do not have the color sheen on their necks and these two do.

    They look like females to me too. Females will have a green sheen on their necks just like yours do. ;)
