This is Lady GaGa my Polish Crested and coolest most friendly chicken. I think she is a he because of the way the head feathers are falling. What do you think? Oh she is about 8 weeks old.

Cute chick. I don't own any polish crested (But I really want to) and it seems to me like your little one could very well be a cockerel. Dies gaga ever Pick on other chicks? Sometimes that can mean a rooster.

I am not convinced she is a boy.  Crests as large as polish get,   can't defy the rules of gravity.  Unless she get very unruly spikes of crest going off in several directions, I think she is a pullet.  Males  end up with wild rock start crests.  Females have the busy, rounded crest.

Cockerel

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
