    I believe I have a Rooster, but would like some verification. He is about 18 weeks old.

    What breed is this? I saw a female with the same markings but less fluff on top (could have been cut) but the owner didn't know what breed.

    Yes, Thanks. I knew it was a Silver Laced Polish and now it is trying to crow, so a Silver Laced Polish cockerel.
