    My polish chicks are now 11 weeks,the one I swore was a male has waddles, but no comb but had spiky top hat, now that he's getting more and more feathers all are rounded not thin. The dad was a golden color and they are black and gold. Could he be hen feathered?

    Any breed can throw a henfeathered bird from time to time,
    He also could just be a she...Do you have any pictures of him?
