What kind of combinations can I get if I put a pair of silver pies together a a white Spalding hen? Because some of the chicks don't look like what I thought, so I was wondering if some just will carry the gene.

Silver pied with white will produce:
Pied White eye (single copy)
whites

The pair of silver pieds will produce silver pieds, dark pied white eyed (2 copies) and white

I have got some chicks from the silver pieds that look like India blue chicks but have white wing features. Are these going to be dark pied white eyed?

I would say yes, they would most likely be the dark pied white eyed. If you breed these chicks with any white ones that are siblings, you will produce 100% silver pied birds
