    picked up a few all-female chicks from MPC. they're about 5 weeks now. my white crested polish bantam has a O shaped head, which is typical of females according to my research. a little worried about the silver laced polish since it's got an oval shaped head and is basically rocking a mohawk. help sexing? thank you in advance!

    [​IMG] welcome from NE Kansas!!

    Well from looking at the last two pictures, I would say that one is a pullet, for I have one the same breed. But they seem still a little young to truly say one or the other. Course, with the funky head feather from the first several pictures that one could be a cockerel. if one crows soon you will have your answer!![​IMG]
