If they are normal blue peafowl, then the males will have a kind of barred brown pattern all over their back and the females will be plain brown in the same area. Young females will look just like adult females in this regard.

By 12 months they will have the colour and the tail starts to develop by 2-3 years they start looking impressive :)
