    All of the blues/white or pied splits are peacocks- blue on necks, the barring on back are very definite male traits.

    The white appears to be same size and have same body proportions as the definite males, so he is likely a peacock also.

    In whites, the females are identified by shorter legs and toes compared to males of the same age. So if you either cannot or are hard pressed to see a size difference, then that's your probable answer.
