Not good at polish but if I had to guess it would be hen.  WHatever it is it is CUTE!  I LOVE that color!

Have had chickens for a whole six years now!  This year decided to try out ducks too!  WOW messy they are, but totally worth it, their cuteness overpowers all the messes they can make :D  Check them out at:  autumnbreezechickens.blogspot.com

Looks like a girl to me. Very smooth afro and rounded neck feathers. My boys' hair is very spikey and wild, my girls real smoothed back. Here are pics of my Silver polish rooster and golden polish hen for comparison.
