    How can you tell? what about the crest makes the difference?

    Here is my polish. I duont know if she is a "she" or if maybe she is a mix or if all polish. Can anyone enlighten me here. If you need a better pic I can snap one.

    due to the solid patches on the wings i am leaning towards cockerel. and you can not tell the gender via crest

    How on the crest? Are you thinking mine is a full silver laced polish?

    here is a cleaner shot without anyone in the way. I can get a better one if needed. There are no wattles and no comb. It is 7 weeks old

    Really? I always thought you could by the shape.. A crazy spikes do a boy and a neat rounder feathered ball a girl. I guess I'm wrong. Sorry!

    I'm pretty sure that is how you tell when they are older at this age you can't go by that because it is not fully devloped i think. But none of the other chick have a starting of a comb that i noticed so that is why i wonded if this one was a male.
