Are these polish hens or roosters?

    Too early to tell yet I'm afraid.

    I'm not sure you have polish there as polish should not have feathered legs. Do they all have feathered legs? Can quite see in the pics on the back chicks.

    Having taken a closer look at your pics I see you have one non feathered leg which I believe is a polish. Your 2 that have feathered legs I believe look like sultans.

    Yes I think buff laced too. The lacing should come in on the feathers as the bird ages :D

    I was wondering about the feathering on feet as well.

    I looked and sultan's looks to be correct on the white ones. I ordered assorted polish/crested I guess so 2 aren't polish. We got a beautiful pair of white crested blue polish too.
