    I bought this pea 3 months ago as a hen, actually bought a pair and the other was obviously male. She is very young yet, I think last last year or early this years hatch.

    Can anyone confirm she is female, I am still learning the trick to sexing them.
    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, female.

    Your female has a bit color on front of neck and a few other things not typical for a 'pure' Indian black shoulder.. she likely has some spalding blood. If you noticed her not exactly matching pictures of the usual black shoulders, try looking at pictures of black shoulder spalding hens. (Norm Johnson has good pictures on his website)
