    I know nothing about pheasants, please forgive the annoying question. Are these old enough to tell? And if so how? 20190710_084315.jpg 20190710_084300.jpg

    They are still too young to tell gender. It also looks like the two biggest birds are turkey poults? And I also noticed some quail.

    I thought the two biggest with the white on them looked like they were possible pea chicks. There are no turkey poults in there.

    Yeah, you might be right, I didn't think about them being peachicks. I know for sure they aren't pheasants.
    ETA - just looked at the pics again, one of the chicks appears as it my be a peachick, because it looks like it's crown feathers might be starting to grow.

    Lol there are quail and peachicks in the picture, only 3 of the birds are pheasants. They cling to the peachicks and it's difficult to get a separate photos. There are poults in the pen for the time being but not in those pictures. View attachment 1841431
