    once they lose their baby barring, there really isn't a way to tell.

    There are members here that live in florida so someone should be along to help you if you are looking,
    After a year i find it difficult to tell the age , most of my IB hens have white on their feet so i can tell them apart but my whites are impossibe except for a select few that are bannded with zip ties
