I have 4 polish chickens that I ordered as sexed females. Some are starting to get waddles and the seem to have different top knots. They are 8 weeks old now.
Blue is a white crested blue polish. She was being a little shy today, so the pics are a little dark.
Taby is a white crested black polish with waddles.
Autumn is a golden laced polish with a crazy top knot.
And Monkey is a silver laced polish with scissor beak and a spikey top knot.

Hi :frow

Did you get them from a hatchery? Were they vent sexed?
Polish are notoriously hard to sex I’m afraid but that said the only one that would concern me at the moment is Autum. The spikey crest & wattle development swing me towards this but they are not too red. Taby & the wattles don’t concern me as white crested black females have wattles. The crest also looks tidy which says female. My WCB hens also have spurs!

For now I would give it a few more weeks to be sure but nothing 100% Male jumps out at me.

I have already been watching Monkey to make sure he/she gets enough to eat. I read with scissor beak they may not get enough to eat.

Maybe that is why Autumn kept running away when we were having our talk......

Thanks for the reply.
