    Hi,
    I bought 5 White Crested Black Polish at a feed store. The are now 12 weeks old. About 4 weeks ago I gave 2 to a friend thinking that they were cockerels but even then I wasn't sure b/c they basically all looked the same. I have done an exhaustive search of this forum for help, but in the only thread that might have helped (same breed/same age) the poster's pics didn't come through. So here are pics of my 3 chickies. No wattles, pinkish/yellow around eyes and beak, not much in the way of spiky "toothpicks" in crest. Give it your best shot! Thank you bunches!

    i would say all pullets, by 6 weeks my polish rooster had started to develop big red wattles, and the pullets had none.

    Pullets would be fantastic! I've got as many roos as I can handle with 24 hens. Funny that I managed to get all pullets out of 5, huh? What're the chances... [​IMG]

    Now I can name them - I was waiting to find out. They are now officially Charlotte, Emily, and Anne (Bronte)! Well, I am an English prof, so my chickies have to have literary names, of course [​IMG]
