UMMMMM I'm stunned I just read someone's thread and realized that I may have had a girl instead of a boy all this time. NO wonder he didnt crow! , LOL thought I just got lucky. = ) He just died last night. Dont know if any of you read my thread about JJ getting attacked by my dog. He survived the day but died last night. So I've spent the day reading up on the bread and looking at pix because I want to get another one. Only to realize that I think I had a girl not a boy. It was given to me by a friend who had to move and couldnt take him with her so I offered to take him in, she told me he was a boy. I knew nothing of the breed and thought he was so sweet looking. The first day I met him he came right up too me and followed me around all day. but I think.... he's really a she. Check this out: The white polish come in non bearded and bearded varieties. The non bearded have red "v" comb, face and wattles. The non bearded male wattles are rounded on the bottom and even in length with no disfiguration. The female wattles are small to non existant. The "v" comb on both sexes should be small, with non existant being better. The bearded male and female beard goes all the way to and hides the ears with no wattle. The white polish beak, leg shank and toes are slate blue and eyes are reddish bay. The ear lobes are white with no discoloration. As for the plumage, the web, fluff and shafts of all feathers, in all sections are white in both male and female. The type of white on a pure white is "recessive". That means there will be no splash of black markings on the feathers, although there might be a solid black feather or two found in the pure white plumage somewhere on the body or crest. When you breed this "recessive" white bird to another color you will end up with chicks showing the color of the other bird with no white showing in the plumage. The crest on the male is very large and profuse, free from split or parting. Feathers in the male crest are similar in shape to those in the hackle. The tail on the male is at a 45 degree angle and fully fanned. The crest on the female is round and full. It is in the shape of a soft ball and very dense. A lopsided or split crest should be shunned. The tail is at a 40 degree angle and fully fanned. Ok my little one had a puff ball on his/her head. Does that make it a girl? He/she was all white.
