It's been a sad week for me. Our silkie ended up being a roo & now I'm thinking both of my polish are too, leaving us with only 2 hens out of 5.

Can someone tell me if these little ones, raised since 6/26 are Roos? Do they have the tell tale saddle feathers? Or is there still a chance they could be pullets? Thanks in advance!

Your silver laced is a pullet but sadly the brown and black one is a roo. You can tell polish by their head feathers. Pullets have pretty hair do's roos have crazy scattered hair do's. Both are very pretty birds

See, in that first picture, I swear I see long, skinny saddle feathers and I'd guess they're both cockerels. Better quality Polish males don't have quite the messy hair dos that lesser quality males do....
