I just realized my 13 week old Polish may be a rooster, what do you think?

    I think you may be right. That's a very wild rocker 'do, not the smooth bouffant 'do the ladies have.

    Well, sometimes our own birds are the most difficult to sex. Years ago I had a memorable Easter egger who was so beautiful, such vibrant colors! Took me a few months to recognize I had a rooster........and then I felt like an idiot cause it was so apparent to other folks.

    He's going to be very pretty, love the buff color on the Polish [​IMG]

    Polish can be tricky - he's a cockerel.

    Oh thank you he is so pretty. He used to be my favorite until he started acting bratty. I suspected then but put it out of my mind. Today I didn't see it but heard a distinct wannabe crow noise a few times. :p
