    These are my 4 month old pied peachicks. Wondering your thoughts on sex on the pair.

    The first pic is both..one on left is Senko (no white on back) and the one on right is Zod (white splotch on back)

    The second two pics are the back and side of Senko.

    Last two pics back and side of Zod.

    Do i have at least one male?

    Sorry I don't know anything about peafowl but, if you go to the "Other backyard Poultry" forum you can find peacock threads. Those folks can tell you what you need to know. Welcome to BYC

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Like drumstick diva, I'm a chicken person and don't know much about peafowl (never had any), but you can ask our peafowl experts at https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/51/peafowl. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your peafowl.

    I'm not very helpful with sexing peacocks but I would guess female.
