    Hello, my beautiful babies are 13 weeks old, and I am so curious if they are male or female. Any help would be appreciated. [​IMG]

    Your IB looks like a boy.
    Whites are hard to tell, and this guy might be too young to figure it out, someone here with white birds will have to help you out!
    More pictures would be helpful, too...

    The young white male had long head, long legs, long fingers..... and they stand straighter!
    You made the comparison!

    Blue is a boy and the white would be hard for me to tell for sure without seeing it in person but looks like it is bigger than the blue so i would say male also by just the photo.
    Posted this answer earlier don't know why it is not here [​IMG]

    So if they are both boys should I try and get a female?
    What are you looking at to tell its a male?

    The size of the white makes me think male from the photo if they are hatchmates no other reason
    Getting a female is a good idea even if the white turns out to be a hen a trio is always nice [​IMG]

    The barring on his wings, if it was a female it will lose these barrings.
