    Polish chicken sex identification help please

    Hi so I have these Polish chickens and have just read that it's easier to tell the sex based on the head fluff shape before they get their feathers. So I'm going to share some one day old images in the hope that some one with some experience might spot some clues. Pullets or Cochins? There are 4...
