How do you sex white peafowl? I have 5 that are 3 months old. When will I be able to sex them?

if they are all the same age....in the next few months you will notice the males become leggier, and generally larger. The longer legs is usually what I notice first.

Yes longer leg on males, also look at spur buds, male larger in dia.

for sure do DNA, all other will have mistake, why most even the top breeders sell then unsex.

Same with more white silver pied, greens, high % spalding

yes I agree.. give a few months, if all are same age. By the time they are 6 months old, the males will be getting bigger/taller with longer and thicker legs and toes than the females. with 5 you should have them in both sexes and so the difference will show up eventually.

I had that problem with Greens and whites, however, I used feather sexing, it was very inexpensive, 12.00each.
