    Hi! I was wondering if anyone could tell me what coloring my fabulous 6 week old bantam polish will end up being and your guess on Cockerel or pullet? I can't see any hint of comb under all that crest! I've never had a polish before and I'm in love.

    Is it supposed to be a particular variety of Polish or was it produced from mixing colors together? And at first glance I wanted to say pullet but then I think cockerel instead. Better photos of it standing on the ground with sunlight instead of being held against you would make it a little easier. ;)

    I might be able to another day, it was very windy and it was scared of my big chickens coming to check it out when I took pictures. No idea what it's supposed to be, I just got it out of the bantam bin at TSC.

    Red is what I was thinking, it really surprised me when it's feathers came in because this is what it looked like when I got it!
