I hatched these peafowl on a whim. I can't keep them. Can't figure out what I have in coloring and sex, though. Each that looks like IB have creamy chest feathers. There is blue/green in the neck feathers, though. Light one is also still a mystery to me. I'm selling them all and would like to know what to tell buyers that they are.

Their one-month pictures are here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=232085 They hatched around July 20.

Thanks

Look at the first pic, the hen is the 3rd from the left, note she doesnt have all the barring on the back feathers as the other two IB, females lose the barring as they get older, males dont.

White need to wait until about a year. Good guess if they are the same age, males are longer legged. Thicker legs

You guys are good. Thanks.

These were hatched at the same time, but the lighter one has always been slower growing. I hope that is nothing to be concerned about.
