    Someone I'm sure will be along soon to tell you about the size of their spurs or how tall they stand or other minute things you can look for to make good guesses, but I think four months is probably still young even for that. If you're intent on knowing sooner rather than later, you can visit www.dnasexing.com and order a kit from them and they can blood sex your birds.

    4 months is too young to tell easily on a peacock.[​IMG]

    They need to be a little older closer to a year old, then you can add some pictures and we will help you sex them.

    Did you ever think that maybe they would like to find a mate for it? so they could get one while they're young and cheaper [​IMG]
