    You have a Polish chicken, at the moment it appears to be a "she." Polish & Silkie breeds are among the most difficult to sex early. However if her nice bouffant crest develops into wild streamers shooting off into every direction, she would be a cockerel.

    You can also post photos at "what breed or gender is this." for more opinions. :welcome
