    Well - in my original post at 12 weeks old - it was pretty unanimous - but thought I would try one last time.

    Here's my original thread:

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/711020/12-week-old-polish-roo-or-hen

    And here are some updated photos at 15 weeks old. It's the first day of rain today - and her crest is soaked and looking particularly pointy - but it looks just like it did at 12 weeks (when it's dry). I'm seeing a lot of dark narrow feathers growing in on her back.

    Definitely a boy. I see pointy saddle feathers and hackle feathers.

    Thanks for the update! I'm always curious to see how they turn out when I see the postings on here. Hope you're enjoying this dry weather!
