I have 2 polish chickens, same age - they are both really long-legged but their tophats are very different (one is droopy and one sticks straight up). Are both of them males?
polish chickens - sex question

do the females get the tophat too? The one male with the droopy feathers has been crowing a lot...but not the other one. However, the other one appears to have what I'm guessing are spurs. Are the less dominant ones just less flamboyant or something?
The less dominant roosters will crow little or less than the dominant one. This is what a hen looks like:
See? A poof. An afro.
Hens seem to have nice poofs, that look like they have been blow dried.
Here is a link,
the females do have nice poofs - and thanks for the links - another questions: is this a polish? Or a mottled houdan? I figured it was a mottled houdan roo (I ordered mottled houdan and polish hens but got a bunch of extra (roo) chickens with the order) but looking through the links it looks exactly like a white crested black polish rooster...
