    Hi guys first post and all ready asking for help , all though i have been browsing this site for a while now . any way , my first hatch of chickens are now 8 weeks old and i was wondering if the more experienced here could give me and idea as to what sex they are , hopefully there is some pics under this text if ive done it right lol
    1 gold laced polish bantam has the crest of hen but acts like a cockrel absolute star jumps on my shoulder as soon as coop is opened
    2 second polish with frizzle
    3 third one also with frizzle
    4 , 5 and 6 , silver birchins ones got bigger comb than others is he a cockrel and the other 2 hens or are they just slower

    and finally a millefleur im thinking cockrel but not sure

    hope these pics arent to big apologies if they are , thanks for looking Adrian

    pic 4 is a cockerel - look at that stance and demeanor, haha - little baby stink eye! (not to mention those nice red comb and wattles). i would guess that your millefleur is also a cockerel. [​IMG]
    btw, chick in pic 2 is absolutely ADORABLE! [​IMG]

    #1 - Pullet.
    #2 & #3 - It's hard to tell,but I'm pretty sure one of them might be a cockerel. ( Sorry if this isn't of any help. I'm not an expert on Polish. )
    #4 - Definite cockerel.
    #5 & #6 - Definite pullets.
    #7 - Cockerel.
