Cockerel or Pullet?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

 

I just got a buff polish chicken that is around 8 weeks old. I have never owned a polish before so i don't know how to sex them. The guy I got him or her from told me he was sure it is a pullet but even he isn't an expert in polish chickens. What do you think, Cockerel or Pullet?

Looks like a female to me.

possibly pullet  - if long streamers start shooting form the crest  - it's probably a boy

It's so difficult because it doesn't have a waddle which makes me think pullet but at the same time it has a more loosely looking feathers on its head where as a female have a tighter Afro looking head
