    My friend has two Polish chickens that are 18 weeks. All of her other chickens are definitely pullets (sex links and RIRs) but she said that she's been hearing crowing in the morning, so my best guess is that it's one of the straight run polish. She sent me pictures of the suspected crow master, but I have zero experience with Polish chickens. Any ideas on gender?
