    Here is a picture of one of my chicks. He was hatched sometime around Memorial Day.
    I caught him at a few days old. He was hatched by one of my neighbors hens. She said I could have a few chicks.
    It is a boy right???

    Thanks. I hope he gets a little friendlier before I start free ranging him.
    Hopefully my young chick is a girl.

    Yep, boy. [​IMG]

    Quote:The intense color coming in the neck area and the barring on the back. By this time, females would be losing that barring and would have very little color to them.

    Hi Glenmar,
    Can you please send me the photoes of opened wings of your wonderful peachick, once I get your photoes of opened wings of peachicks, I will help you tell you about whether it is male or female and I will work to find the date of birth of your peafowl.

    Clinton.
