    Polish are very late to mature, so you can't be sure at this point. The crests don't look particularly messy, and I don't see any distinct saddle/sickle feathers, so they look like pullets at this point.

    Nothing too roo like is jumping out at me either right now. The first pic you posted of the gold lace is that the same bird in your last pic?

    Thank you so much for the responses! No, the top bird is different from the bottom bird. [​IMG]

    You are most welcome, nothing looks too male like with the bird you just posted so I think you have every chance of having females.
    Polish are notoriously hard to sex though and I've had birds that have kept me guessing for 6 months before I have known for sure what their gender is.

    Nice birds and good luck with them in the future.

    nothing is screaming cockerel at this point, so hopefully [​IMG] they will be pullets
