    My wife and I are trying to guess what sex our 9 week old peachicks are. We believe we have one IB male split to white and think the other may be an IB male with a little pied markings to the front of the wing/shoulder area. Are we right? These are our first peafowl and are new at this.

    Thank you very much. Here is a pic of them Bob, Pete, and Runtsy a female guinea that was near death as a 4 day old. They have became their own little clique since they have spent most of their lives being separated from the others.
    We started off with 4 peachicks and had two of them die by having the top part of their beaks pecked off by the guinea chicks.
