    polish can be as difficult to sex as silkies - so I think too young to make a proclaimation- a wrong guess could ruin a future.

    x2, in some cases Polish have more difficult to sex than Silkies due to an odd crest shape or size. I would wait till its at least 4 months to make a for certain decision on it. 5-6 months would be even safer yet if you can.
