    Good morning all! I just have 5 pea fowl and 2 guineas 3 1/2 months old small operation but got them for an addition to our small farm. Still trying to sex them but I'm more confused now than ever from what I'm reading on here![​IMG]

    I've never had peafowl or guineas so can't help you with the gender question but you certainly have some beautiful birds.

    Thanks for joining us!

    for peafowl advice put "Peafowl threads," in the search box and they will come up. And do the same for " guinea threads." I haven't checked on guineas but, I've visited the Peafowl thread several times and the folks there seem very kind and thoughtful.

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    Sexing guineas is easy once they start to make sounds. Males "git-git-git", females "buckwheat" and "git-git-git."

    As for the peas... I'm still a newb to peas as well, but I'd say the one in the middle is definitely a cock, the ones to the right look like hens.
