    I have a person wanting a male peachick to go with her hen also this year's hatch. Mine were hatched beginning of Aug. but not good at sexing them. One is a week younger than the other 2 but all are starting to green out on the neck. I remember someone saying that male bars are "blocky"
    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Here are the new pictures. I do not know which is of which but they are of all 3 of my hatchlings.[​IMG]

    I'd say you have two gals there, but as Zaz says, it's hard to see in those photos...

    There are actually 3 different birds, the one on the roost being the smallest but I guess nature has a way of balancing out as lasts years hatch of 3 turned out to be 3 males LOL!
    Thanks everyone, it was kind of what I was thinking. I will try to get better detail. Hard to get good quality with a phone camera.

    Still looks like all hens and it also looks like they have almost lost all of their barring. I only see one black band on the tip of each brown wing feather so they are disappearing. [​IMG]
