    I posted this particular bird before and got mixed answers. Lets see if its easier with these pictures. Roughly 7 1/2 weeks old (excuse the dirty feathers- watermelon tastes good!):

    i dont know because i haven't raised polish. but in my opinion.. looks henish BUT.. with the tophat (fluff hat, Crest, puffball on the head, and also called Feathers on the head). maybe.. a young rooster thats feathers haven't finished growing yet

    I'm going with hen based on the poof, the tail, and the coloring so far... usually my roosters are a little spiky in the crest by then and have longer tails and a stronger buff, but I have been fooled before.

    Pullet. Very big and round. And males are much darker buff than that, almost a reddish feather
