    I'm brand new to the whole chicken business and so happy I purchased my first small flock back in spring. Best thing Ive ever done!
    I need help! Idk if this is a pullet or a roo? I assume it's a pullet by the crest on its head.I'm not sure if you guys can tell by the pics but your input is appreciated.
    Help please

    Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

    Polish chickens are hard to sex. How old is your bird? Could you get a face shot? Those pointy saddle feathers say it's a rooster but it doesn't appear to have a very large comb.
    The member @Yorkshire coop keeps polish chickens, maybe she can offer a word of advice.

    And be sure to post here too. https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this

    Welcome to BYC! If I had a guess, I would say female. But, they are hard to sex. I would do what is suggested above!

    By the crest, looks like a pullet. Males have wild rock star crests with streamers. A face forward shot would help.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! I would say pullet right now. How old is she? Could you get a shot of her tail? Tails can be a give away too with gender.
    Lovely little bird you have there, good luck with her.

    Enjoy BYC :frow
