    They are five and a half weeks old, so it may be too early to tell.
    However, based on my experience this summer- if they like me, they are roos. [​IMG]
    The Turken loves me, and always has since it hatched. It wants to be on me 24/7. The Polish was terrified of me until a few nights ago. It has now decided that sleeping on me is the best thing ever.

    Thanks!

    Edit: Here is another couple views of the Polish:

    AND, these are five and a half weeks old also. Anyone know what breed they are/gender they are?(these are the same size or smaller than the Polish):

    note: I really dont see any speckles on this bird, that is the sunlight reflecting on its feathers.

    Yay! Then she can stay here. Those black combs are not fair- the other turken is obviously roo, but he has a red comb.

    This is him, and while he is such a baby: crybaby, that is. I can't have roos so he will be lookin for a new home (with a friend, because he cries nonstop unless he has a friend near by):

    Quote:aww [​IMG] I should have figured it. All summer, all the hatches- the coolest ones end up being roos.

    That was the only one to hatch out of my batch of polish eggs too.

    i thought the polish might be a pullet. my polish roo has a poof that's looser than that. i might wait a little bit....... but i'm no polish expert. sometimes it's so hard to tell for me.

    I think the polish could be a pullet. If you click the blog link in my signature, there are pics of my buff polish growing up. If you want to compare.

    The polish is a PULLET. The males have a wider poof and it looks like a punk rocker style. The females always have a rounder poof.
