    Here is my 6 wk old crazy polish chicken. Still trying to determine if it's Phyllis or Phil. Opinions? I know nothing is for certain until it crows or lays an egg, but I'm curious as to what the polish gurus think.

    Here are some pics all of the same bird:

    It is still a little early to be sure, but I would say I am leaning on hen. I dont see any wattles, or redness and the legs look on the smallish side.

    I think hen too. Whatever she is, she is very pretty.

    Ohhhh I hope you are all right!! I'm crossing my fingers that it's a hen. It's cute and a crazy little thing, that's for sure. Scared of everything and runs around like a maniac! That "hair" just cracks everybody up![​IMG]

    If her poofy feathered head starts to lay down and not stay in the ball shape it is now then she is then a he lol
    One of my hens had tiny wattles and the other had larger ones.
    They are a lot of fun...I lost my Phylis (roo is Diller) to a puppy just lately and I'll always miss her.
