I have a 13 week old Black shoulder and I was wondering if there was a way to tell gender at this age? Confused

A male should start showing a little color (darker) a hen will be lighter, pictures would help if you can figure out how to post them on here.

Sexing black shoulder peachicks past ten weeks old is quite easy to do. The males will
have a pattern of feathers on their backs. Each feather has concentric rings of green and
tan with very clean lines. Some females will have simular markings but the lines between
the colors will blurred instead of clean. Other females will be of duller color.
I remember writing about this for the PEACOCK JOURNAL long, long, long ago Confused
