    Want to be sure it’s a rooster before giving it away. Such a sweet bird! What do you guys think?

    Nothing is screaming rooster at me yet, Although it's pretty hard to sex polish chickens. I'd wait a few more weeks to be certain but for now i'm going to say you have a pullet.
    Check for darker/Rusty colored feathers on wings and saddle feathers, Those normally will show up on a cockerel for gold laced polishes.

    I thought if they looked like they had one big party and crest was wild was a cockerel, and the more put together nicer looking crest was female. but then again only have my friends to go by and they are black and white ones lol

    Would you call this a big party crest? I have no other polish to judge him/her by.
