    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!

    The 1st pic is a pullet
    The 3rd pic is a pullet
    4-5-6 are pullets too

    Pic 2 is at a weird angle and can't tell but it looks like a pullet

    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

    I agree with bekahubbell. Your Silver Laced Polish is a pullet. You're Golden Laced Polish is a rooster.

    If you breed them, you'll get more GL though and could replac your roo with a pullet

    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....

    Can't tell from those photos. Might need to ask again in a couple weeks. I'm like the annoying 8-ball fortune! Yay!
