    Any one have any clues to help me out. They are out in the pen together and I though I banded all my IB chicks from this season... Wrong ! Now someone wants my last pair and I can't figure out the difference in the last 2. I only could tell the others because of the white flights, and one hen has a few white feathers on her back. The other hen did have one whitish spot... but now it's gone. One hens chest is lighter than the other..... which might that be? [​IMG] learned my lesson..... [​IMG]

    Check the neck feather colors, bronze with have a darker neck. You are talking about a split bs right
