    Hey fellow peeps! This 9 week old Polish X Ameraucana needs a gender. Bean’s size, and feathering indicate cockerel, but his/her comb and lack of waddles indicate pullet. Would love to hear your thoughts.....

    Some breeds are more difficult to tell. I have a hard time with Silkies too.

    I have a polish/Jersey giant mix that had a bright comb at 7 weeks old, For the longest time I thought he was a cockerel but a few months later he turned out to be a she and laid me some lovely medium sized cream colored eggs for us to eat~ So i'd say she a pullet.. not 100% sure though.

    9 weeks is a bit young for cockerel feathering.
    Quite a bit of red in that comb tho...which leans me towards male.
    Guess you'll have to wait and see.

    I'd guess male too.
