    I'm not sure how much it varies within each color variation, but it takes a LONG time for peafowl to develop their "true" colors -usually several months to a year or more (unless you're intimately familiar with peafowl sexing and coloration, of course). There is lots of good information online, good luck! [​IMG]

    In pure Indian blue you can tell sex by the flight feathers, males will have a burnt seannia red and females will be more of a dark brown. They will not fully develope their color until 1 to 2 years of age, but will start losing the brown tones 6months to a year old.[​IMG]
