    This Black Crested White Polish is 12 days old and seems to act like a roo. Is it possible to sex a Polish at this age? Do you think it's a roo? In the second photo he/she is the one on the right.

    Sorry, not experienced enough to give an answer boy/girl, but our polish did turn out to be a roo. He just crowed today!! [​IMG] So far his crow is not too bad...not any louder than my hens egg songs and he's stayed nice. He/She's very cute though!

    You can tell when they get older by the crest feathers. Pointy--- rooster, rounded----hen.

    My best guess at this age is Roo but then again I'm still trying to sex my 8, 2 month olds! I can't wait to see a black crested white when it gets older!

    My black crested whites were that color from hatch. Those look like something else.

    How old was your Polish when he first crowed?
