    I have been looking at the pictures on this forum and trying to compare, but can't be sure. So I would appreciate any help with the sex and type of these two. I understand if the pictures aren't good enough.

    Thank you both. Are they IB? Or do they have some green in them? I only ask because of the shape of their feathers.

    They look IB to me but it is hard to tell in the photos.

    Indiablue hens have white colored breast feathers while the spaldings have light brown feathers in the breast area. The chick in the second picture is showing white breast feathers meaning she is Indiablue.
