    My polish chick needs a name. Is this a boy or a girl? I've got my Buff Orpingtons all figured out but with this one I'm not sure. There's no sign of any comb or wattle. Any guesses? [​IMG]

    I had both a male polish chick and female polish chick that age recently- your chick looks very much like a female to me. At 5 weeks my little roo was starting to show redness and wattles. The female at 9 weeks still has no wattles and no real redness- the male I gave away.

    A she? That would be wonderful! *fingers crossed*. He or she, this little baby is such a sweety. [​IMG]
