Howdy Amber,

Hard to tell at this age....at 3 to 4 months, you should be able to see the wattles appearing on the face of males.
I don't know which bird is which in the pics but this one looks like it may be male...can kinda see the wattle starting around it's eye.

Good luck with your birds.

here is a male chick at approximately 3 months.......compared to my avatar that is around 6 months
I have several True pheasants that have hatched out within the last few days...I'll have to take some pics when I start to see the change....I usually notice the change around the 3 to 4 months but it could be earlier?

i’m pretty sure I brought these chicks home around mother’s day and the date on the posted pic is July 20......avatar pic is November 15. if i remember correctly the juvenile pic was big boy that was a pretty early developer vs Gimpy that was the “runt” of the group and last to get his colors
