    This is Lady GaGa my Polish Crested and coolest most friendly chicken. I think she is a he because of the way the head feathers are falling. What do you think? Oh she is about 8 weeks old.

    Cute chick. I don't own any polish crested (But I really want to) and it seems to me like your little one could very well be a cockerel. Dies gaga ever Pick on other chicks? Sometimes that can mean a rooster.

    I am not convinced she is a boy. Crests as large as polish get, can't defy the rules of gravity. Unless she get very unruly spikes of crest going off in several directions, I think she is a pullet. Males end up with wild rock start crests. Females have the busy, rounded crest.
