I think I know the sex of these birds, but can you confirm?

    I have a friend whose pair of India Blues hatched a pair of chicks in August. They are now 4 months old. I think she has 1 male and 1 female. Can someone have a look and see what you think?

    Male?

    Well, its hard to tell with your pictures... The female is a Female... you are correct...

    the one you say is a male... Looks like it might be a male, but I would need a sharper picture of his back... i dont want to say its a male and it may just be shadows of something on his back..

    but looks like 100 percent female and 87 percent male.
