    I'm new to this forum and looked through several similar posts and still can't figure out if our miss Bella is He or She... I've got her couple of weeks ago and she should be 4-5 months now (hatched in May). I have only 4 chickens and they are all really friendly with each other, so I don't see any behavioral differences. Could you help me based on the photos?[​IMG]

    [​IMG]Hi, welcome to BYC!!!

    I've never had Polish, but based off of what ive seen of other people's Polish, I'd say yours is a cockeral. It's beautiful, nonetheless!!!!

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Does your polish have any reddening of the wattles?

    Thank you for warm welcome! I'm so new to this. So I've tried to snap a close-up portrait and I see a bit of pinkish color, but not red. What do you think?
    I still hope she is a she, because it's my favorite chicken, follows me everywhere and it took me a while to find her/him. And we can't keep roosters, so I will have to find a new home if it's a He..

    Oh guys, this is really funny! I've got doubts about miss Bella's gender because my husband told me he heard her crowing. So today I watched her closely and I heard some crowing, but it was my other chicken! I was sure that she is a she... [​IMG]
    Miss Polly, seems to be mister Polly and has to look for new home I suppose
