Hey!
I'm hoping that someone could help me find out the gender of my peachick.
I'm new to hatching peafowl so I'm leaning as I go. I know what differences to look for, but am finding it difficult as I have nothing to compare him to..
The peachick is just over 4 months old and I'd always assumed they were a boy, based on their personality.
Since they were 2 weeks old they would display thier tail and shake; and still does sometimes when I approach.
But I'm having my doubts as I've had multiple people tell me he looks female. I'm so curious and I just want to be sure.

Thanks for your time! :)

I've included the best photos I could find that shows his legs and feather patterns/colours. But I could get ones of his flight feathers as I've heard that can help.

And this looks like the 3 hens mentioned above with an India Blue black shoulder cock.

I don't see any pieds, but I am not a color expert.

@KsKingBee, what do you think these are?
