    A month is really too early to sex with any accuracy, another month and we can probably tell you with some certainty. In the meantime I am going to guess male because it seems to have a lot of striping going on, but that can change. Keep updating us with pics and we'll let you know as soon as we can. Pics showing the back and pics showing the chest work best for sexing at this age. Welcome to the Peafowl section!
