    Yesterday i bought 4 new hens, two ib sp hens and two opal sp hens, the problem is i don't know which one is the opal silver pied and which are the ib silver pied hens[​IMG] , how can i tell if they are opal silver pied or india blue silver pied? I noticed one has green feathers back of her neck so i thought its ib sp, right?

    If I had to guess looking at what color i can see she might be your opal... toughy... can you get close up of the color part of her? and perhaps pics of the others

    Probably opening a can of worms here, but isn't Peach a sex-linked color and therefore hens cannot be split to it?
