    Im am usually good with sexing Polish but this one just gets me due to its waddles I know hens can get waddles like this too but... Expert opinions only please! This one has the nice rounded crest not pointy and no saddle feathers looks henish and acts henish. So Im not 100% sure if its really a hen or roo. I have lots of pictures.
    Thank you

    Actually its a boy I found saddle feathers coming in and also some spikey hair coming also. Took it a while to figure out what sex it wanted to be. LOL

    Wow! I'm really surprised with the way the crest has developed that it is a boy. That crest is very typical of a hen. Well, he'll be an absolutely stunning boy.

    Yes he will be but will most likely have to go. If only he might not crow lol he could stay.

    beautiful!

    I ordered 3 female Polish, 3 EEs and 3 Buff Orps last July.

    2 of the 3 EE's turned out to be boys. They were also VERY BAD BIRDS. spurring and attacking ME, and kept the hens on the edge. I gave one away and dispatched my gorgeous Paco. He was just too mean. I understand that Polish are difficult to sex.



    they were BEAUTIFUL - here is Paco:
