    On the pure whites you will need to wait up to a yrs or so or DNA sex test.
    If you have more then one you could compare Like body size, leg thickness,etc.

    The IB look like boys to me due to the heavy Barred feathers.

    All of mine go though that stage there necks get lighter even the boys. You need to look at the wing and base of the neck. The boys will be barred feathers and the girl will start to lose the barred look and get the smooth brown look.
