    Hello All!
    This is my surprise Golden Laced Polish, Puff. Puff is 6 weeks old and while I initially thought it was a pullet, I am now thinking cockerel. What do you think?

    He was but I separated him and now his feathers are growing back. I have to sell if he is a cockerel so wanted more opinions :)

    Good! I would definitely wait a bit longer, most chickens can't be 100% sexed until 12 weeks.

    Definite cockerel. He is 8 weeks now. His head feathers have always been too fine to be female. He also has a beard and developing wattles.
