    Ok- you all were so helpful with our White Crested Black Polish that I thought I would ask about our 6 week old Buff Polish Crested---- hen or rooster?

    Same thing for the Golden Polish Crested--- hen or rooster?

    Quote:First guess is telling me both roos. I'd like a front image to see the feather width of the crests, but really, it may be a bit early to tell.

    little hard to tell, my guess is there both cockerals, the crest may be a little low. need a front angle to tell for sure. i could have told you based on spur set and length but too young for spurs to devolope quiet yet.

    And here is the buff polish crested (& golden in the background):

    Any further ideas on the 2 of these?

    I think that the golden is a boy and the buff is a girl, but I could be wrong.

    can you say what you are looking for in sexing polish? i have 7 chicks right now and would love to know what to start looking for. (of course, they're only a few days old right now, so it seems it will be a while until i can even begin to make a good guess).
