    Hi

    My Mo is just over 2months now...I'm seeing red & larger wattles on her (him???) than I am my other polish of the same age. Haven't heard any crowing that I can attribute to Mo (I've 5 cockerels the same age plus an older roo) and no behavior that makes me think it...just the wattles & the crest feathers looking pointed, but none of the spiked ones I've seen in pics. Can anyone reassure me that I've a pullet & not another cockerel? I do see in te 1st pic a 'spike', but I think someone 'helped' to shape the end of that feather. I've heard mention about the crest being round, which the shape to me seems round, but my perception might be off.

    Here's some pics of Mo. Tried to get a good shot of the wattles, head, & tail/stance as I've seen folks ask/comment about all of those in determining. Thanks!

    It does look to be a rooster at two months old.
