    How old? Would you be able to get a pic of the bird stood please? Can look then how the tail is set.

    Sorry I thought my last post embedded the pictures. The tolbunt is about 4-5 weeks. I included a picture of my buff-laced polish next to him. Not sure the gender of this one but it's older than the other one by two weeks supposedly. [​IMG]

    Bit early to tell yet, they can keep you guessing for up to 6 months!! I've got four tolbunts that I'm still guessing on at 8 weeks old.

    Yeah, the breeder that I got them from couldn't tell either. They're the only polishes I have, but they're sweet babies. Very skittish but lovable.
