    Hi everyone, this is my third chick I bought unsexed which so far I think may be a hen? I also was told she's Polish X Pekin.
    If anyone can tell me she's definitely a hen then that'd be great as we'd LOVE to keep her, kids named her Snowy for obvious reasons lol.
    Thanks again :)

    I would say she is about 3-4 months now. What breed do you think she is?

    Do you think she's a hen? I've had pretty bad luck so far with chicks, most of them becoming roosters.

    I am FAR from a chicken expert, but I think s/he looks like a sultan. I have a WCB polish hen and she had a LOT more crest at that age. Just a guess though...

    sultans have feathered legs and 5 toes both of which get passed down to the chicks in mixes 98% of the time
