Kaalnek,

When the peafowl lose their baby feathers and get their first real feathers you should be able to tell. The color difference is quite distinctive.

Here's a picture of a 4 month old male peachick. His mother is a black shoulder, father is India Blue. This chick's color is consistant for India Blue:

Here's a peahen chick at the same age with the same parents. Again, she looks like an India Blue.

Black shoulder peahens look very different. They are mottled white and brown. You can go to my web page to see what the black shoulder peahens look like to compare to yours. peacock pictures In order for a chick to LOOK like a Black shoulder, it has to get that color gene from both parents. Our India Blue male does not carry black shoulder so all our chicks look like India Blue. If our chicks were bred to another black shoulder, then THEIR offspring would look like Black shoulder. I hope this helps! cool

Thanks very much for the pictures, Karen. It really does allow me to see the differences in male/female. None of ours have started to lay yet this year. Thanks again.

We live outside of Seattle. One of our hens has been sitting on 3 eggs for about 2 weeks now, 1 is just in the process of laying and has layed 2 eggs so far. You are welcome! The hen chicks DO have color on their necks, but it was much different as you can see from the males.
