    I just got these guys a few days ago. I was so excited to be able to get some Peafowl of my own as I have always admired them. They are settling in well. They are sweet babies and are pretty tame. They are India Blues possibly white eye. I really like these guys a lot. They are Contesse and Marquess. Contesse is in the front.

    They're called peachicks, not peababies.

    Congrats cutiepieacres and welcome!!!

    Looks like possibly a boy and maybe a girl from your pics. Not totally sure about your second one. Can you do a shot from the top like this:
    This shows 2 girls and a boy (chick on left). The males have barring on their backs that the girls loose.

    Your chicks SHOULD be tame [​IMG] .

    Anyone any ideas on color of cutiepieacres chicks?

    And BTW cutiepieacres the chicks in my pics were my first and from Cindy's eggs

    Thank you Phage for my babies! I really like these guys a lot. I can tell they were handled as babies as they are comfortable with being held. Ill see if I can grab an shot above, I am pretty sure they are boy & girl there is quite a difference in their coloring.

    Hey, I call their eggs Peaeggs, so you can guess what I think of Peababies.. [​IMG]

    Phage's pic is one of the best I've seen for showing the sex differences. Yep one boy and one girl and the boy seems to be showing white eye characterstics- the slight "sugar frosted' look but pic also looks maybe a little overexposed, so hard to tell if the female is too or not.

    Awwww....I would love to have peafowl, but I am afraid my lab would turn them into dinner. Maybe I should rehome the dog.... [​IMG]
