    hi recently hatched my first batch of eggs got 3 black orpingtons and two polish.
    The Orpingtons were easy to sex from about 3 weeks 2 cockerels 1 hen.
    The polish chicks are proving more difficult. Chick number 1 Madonna, is a Chamois frizzle and chick number 2 Michael, is a Gold laced frizzle.
    I have read that their hair dos are supposed to be spikey if cocks and rounded if hens but as they are frizzle it's hard to tell. Madonna has just started to go pink around the wattle area , will try to post pics(may need help) to see what you all think.
    Heres hoping hens as i really love them and want to be able to keep them both.

    I don't have frizzles - and yours are gorgeous! But here's a pic of my hen, Coco, at 14 weeks if that helps at all.

    It's not a close up but she's kind of a spaz and I can't get a good shot of her close up!

    they are great which is why i want to find out sex, so i can sort out housing arrangements if needed.
    They both seem to love the camera and pose without any prompting [​IMG]
