8 week old polish chicks. Starting to get teenie wattles!!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Please tell me they're not both cockerels sad.png
This is sunshine berry (named by our daughter - we laugh and call him sunshine Barry lol) he's always been bigger and had thicker legs


This is snowflake
I initially thought this was a girl because s/he was always smaller and more timid. Both have a nice round pouf on their heads though so I'm stumped!


This one is kinda showing the size difference


Any advice would be very much appreciated

So far they both look like pullets to me.

Gosh I hope you're right! It's just, last week they had no pink around their beaks at all, this week it's pink and starting to get little dangly wattles.

I agree, pullets.

I heard that polish pullets only start getting pink wattles and combs at around 16 weeks sad.png that's why I was worried! Because they're going pink already

I think they are pullets too.    Maybe  "Yorkshire Coop,"  will see this and respond.  She breeds polish and knows a lot about them.

Thank you for your reply! That would be great if she could respond! I just worry about those pink areas around their beaks and the small wattles
