Gender Double Check Polish Chickens

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone,

 

A lady near me is advertising two bantam polish chickens for adoption which she says are hens, supposedly they were hatched on easter. I would take them in but wanted to double check the gender because I can't have roosters where I live. They do look like pullets to me but I wanted to check with the experts here.

 

So, boys or girls?

 

Is there anyway to force a crow from them if they are roos? Like shine a light at them after a period of darkness?

They look like females to me.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Thank you! I thought so too. This lady was so desperate to get rid of them so I felt bad if I committed and then backed out (even though I SWORE I was only going to keep muscovies... can't help it when they look so adorable and funny! I need a laugh or two and I think these guys would do it.)

I agree 100% on being pullets!

Thank you! I did end up picking them up and all are girls (they had another bantam hen that they needed to get rid of so I took it as well). Cute and friendly too.

Both Pullets! Are they standard or bantam size? Here are some pics of my 13 weeks old polish :)

How cute! That lacing on the second one is unreal!

 

Yes, they're bantams. 

 

BTW I JUST noticed they fit in the palm of your hand. WOW, are they really that small at 13 weeks?
