Is my Golden Laced Polish a rooster?

    We have 7 polish chickens, and one of them is a Golden Laced. They're about 9 weeks old now and we noticed that this one is larger than the rest and is starting to get those red markings on the face. Does that mean we have a rooster?

    Hi :welcome

    Yes it could mean you have a roo. If you could post a pic that would be great and we could help you further. Polish sure can be hard to sex, sometimes taking up to six months before you know for sure.

    Looking forward to seeing your pic :D

    I'm afraid looking at the tail set and the wattles that you seem to have a roo there. Are you able to keep him?
