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!

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?
