    I'm not an expert on Polish (don't have any) but boys tend to have more spikey crests. So I say you have a girl.

    I just don't see any wattles for either of them to be roo's, maybe its the picture. My Polish roo's had quite noticeable wattles by that age but if you say that last one is crowing then that's a dead give away LOL

    The top one is female.
    The bottom is male. [​IMG]

    On the bottom one you can see he is growing his spurs. [​IMG]

    Hmmm, they both look girly too me!

    Hens can have spur buds also. Not uncommon. 8 weeks is too early to grow spurs.
