I had posted these two almost a yeqr ago, and everyone agreed on IB. Um...no.lol. They have no blue on them, only green. So... At 1.5 years, what are they. They are a male and a female, but I dont know anything more than that. Cocks name is Herc the Jerk. Hen is Hera ( I know, original right?)

I'm not a pea expert but I agree with Zaz, they are both hens. 1 year males also have spurs and it may be the pics but I can't see any.

Beautiful birds. So you think they both are blues? I saw a pic of a blue male and it said he was 6 months, and had a fully colored neck. I never questioned what color those two are because everyone, the experts, all said blues.lol. Making me feel like an all together newbie again

But he has brown primaries and barred wings? At 1.5 years, I have no clue what color these two are

I have a green spalding male and a silver pied cock. I am good on males. I actually want them to be girls, but according to the big time breeders on here they are male and female.

agree with everyone else, two IB females. They do tend to have a greenish coloring on their neck (as opposed to a true blue color).

And if you are talking about this post from last year https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=410658&p=1 I think everyone had said females at that point too.

for comparison, here is a yearling IB male...same male just different angles, looks a lot more blue in one than the other pic.
