I have some wild peacocks/peahens in the neighborhood - we are trying to determine if they are male or female - We know one for sure is a male but the two new ones we are not sure - can someone help? I have pictures but don't know how to add them here.

I don't know a lot about peacocks/hens, but I think if they have those coloured feathers on the neck they will be males. As far as I know, peahens are drab all over.

On the left is a male, on the right is a female. Females only have green color on necks, young boys can have both blue and green. Plus these are old enough for the boys to show distinct barring all over his wings and back while the girls rapidly lose them, becoming solid colored over the same areas(mud brown).

It takes the males three years to attain full plumage. The male in picture is a year old or less. Next year, his neck and chest will be more evenly colored, how much green he will have on back and tail will be a total guess, it varies wildly between two year old boys.

I am not a Peacock breeders, but love them. Did you see the pictures on the earlier post? Can't see the head of your first pictured bird, could be a female, if she is the same age as the other? The second one is obviously a male--and both are lovely birds......CJR
