I don't know why I never thought to ask this before but.. ( Polish Q)

Discussion in 'Raising Baby Chicks' started by StrawberryHouseMouse, Apr 2, 2009.

  1. Is there a way to sex Polish chicks or Sultan chicks by just looking at them? I'm getting some silver laced polish and some white sultans in a few days. Day old chicks. And it would be great if I knew which ones were little girls and which ones were little boys.

    I think someone here knows the answer to that, so I am bumping this back up.
     
  3. Not as chicks. When they get their top-hats you can attempt to crest sex them, (males have dread-locked crest feathers and hens have poofy afros) but this method is very misleading. Only pros are really good at crest sexing until genders become obvious, at a fw months. So I'd suggest going by comb/wattles growth, disposition, hackle/saddle/tail feathers, etc...like any other chicken.
