sexing polish chicks

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
We just got our first set of polish chicks and 1 didn't quite look like the other, so we googled and now I'm even more worried. I know its hard to tell but any help would be great! Tia

Do you have a photo? If they're bearded looking for tiny red waddles is difficult, but cockerels you'll see their comb develop quicker than the pullets...to me they look like little pointy feelers poking out. Simetimes their crest is a giveaway as well because the cockerels will have a wild doo but its not always accurate.
I have 1 fat cat, and raise true black/blue, silver, white and wheaten Ameraucanas, runmpless araucana, Olive eggers, speckled sussex, wheaten and copper marans, lavender orpingtons, 1 pet delaware hen, white crested and buff laced polish, 1 pet barred rock hen,1 ring neck cock pheasant, 6 ring neck hens, 4 guinea fowl, a smorgasbord of turkeys, 2 kids, and 1 husband.

They are just a few days old, so no wattles. I read that the shape of the crest is a give away, but I'm not sure if this is just how they start out or not. Its the smaller one who's crest I am worried about.

Way to young to sex.

Thanks. I should have just waited for pullets but I was too impatient!

The wait is always the most treacherous part. Try and enjoy them while they are still young.

Much too young,  and crests  will not  look like one sex or the other at this very young age.
