    Can you please get a bigger photo I can't really see them that well in detail. From as good as what I can see they are about 5 - 6 months old

    I don't know why the pics are like that. I can say the one peachick in the bigger photo is 4 to months old in that photo.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family. Though there are 2 things that must be in the photo to have 100%. The breast feathers up close and the wing tips. If you could stretch the wing out it would be perfect. The wing tip should do it but sometimes some feathers are a little misreading and then you need a back up plan and that would be the breast feathers. Get a bit of the neck with the breast feathers for the best result.

    The age seems to be under a year and if or when they are older than about 7 months the male will have developed blue neck feathers and barred, short, train feathers. The female at 7 months will look about the same as now.
    Merry Christmas!!!
