The tail was plucked by my silkie cockeral that is why it looks that way. Roo or hen?
Pullet for sure. A male would have a more slicked back crest, and pointy feathers in the crest, as well as some saddle feathers and larger wattles/comb.
Ok, I was starting to wonder because my silkie cockeral picks on her/him sometimes. That is why so many tail feathers are missing. Also, I have only had one other polish before tyhis not including one of the chicks that died the first week. But, the one before this I gave away thinking it was a roo. The farm sold him/her so i will never know for sure but I am really hoping your right on this one!
I agree with Wyandottes7--you have a pullet. Polish roosters have pointed crest feathers, and more upright stance, and more pronounced comb/wattles. Cockerels will pick on hens just as much as they will on other cockerels, so your cockerel's behavior is normal.
Oh ok. I was wondering though why he only picks on Gizmo and not my cochin bantam. She is about a month older then the two though, so maybe that is why? I know polish tend to be at the bottom of the pecking order.
