    Hi guys, I have a pair of peafowl that are about 5 months old. I have no knowledge on how to sex them, since this is my first time hatching and raising them. Here are some pics:

    Depending on where you are maybe $50,,if they were 2 years old maybe $75-$100,,and if 3 years old $125-$150 on India Blue peas,They are the most common color but also one of the most popular.

    We would need to see photos to help you better especially if you have several varieties other than just India Blues. On young India Blue peafowl, the males will have barring on their wings and the peahens will start to lose this wing barring.
