    I have 3 buff laced polish chicks. 2 of which I know are boys. Because they Crow :p
    I am always running into bad luck and I get mostly or get all boys.
    This one I am not sure about. Its small and cute. Is it a boy or a girl?
    I believe its a girl. And can you tell by the New Feathers coming in. The Boys grow Darker buff feathers and the girls are always light..is this true??

    Because the ones I know for sure are boys have very shiney almost bourban in color feathers coming in.

    I have polish that are about the same age as yours, maybe a little older. looks like a roo to me because of the darker color and it does look like he is bearded. the 2 dark ones I have were roosters.

    Looks like a hen to me. Roos usually have more of a spikey look to the crest by this age. The hens with have more of a rounded appearance like yours. Watch it over the next couple weeks and you should know for sure.

    Ok thats what I was thinking. A girl it is then. Because if it was a boy then the Name it has would be kind of creepy :-D I named her Hiedi when she hatched

    I think the darker feathers is a tall tail sign of a boy. Thanx for verifing it :)

    Thankyou I am very happy with her. She is a little cuddle bug :)

    I say girl, too (and she's very pretty!). Our buff Polish hen had a powder-puff just like that while the roo had a really spiky crest and was darker.
