I was told these polish chickens were pullets. Please help.

    I'm wondering if these really are pullets. They sometimes jump on other chickens and can be quite aggressive towards my sebright rooster. There is also a silkie butt in the photo. I can provide more photos if necessary.

    I'd say that your Silver-Laced and Golden-Laced are males. The crest feathers look pretty pointy, and females would have blunt ones. Your White-Crested Black looks like a female, though. Very pretty birds!

    White Creasted Black is the pullet, while the others got pointy feathers.......males.

    Polish girls tend to have a "ball" crest as compared to a "flattened" crest on the males when viewed from the side. The feathers being pointy can mean roo too. What age are they?

    I just text the lady who I got them from to see if she will let me swap them. I haven't heard back yet. Thank you for all the pointers.

    Just an update. The silver laced chicken turned out to be a hen. I witnessed her laying an egg today :)
