Help Me Sex My Polish Chick

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a new Polish chick - my first one - and he/she is between 1 and 2 weeks old. I've read that people with a more experienced eye than I have can sex a Polish chick based on the shape of the feathers on top of the head. So I've snapped a few photos and would love folks' opinions.[IMG][IMG]

You probably will have to wait until they grow out a bit, but if you take a picture of the extended wing it may be easier to sex that way based on the length of the feathers. But as they get older your cockerels will have thinner and more pointed feathers as opposed to a pullets thicker and rounder ones. Hope this helps a bit!
