    Hey guys, I am pretty new to the chicken keeping world but I know a little bit. I have 4 polish 1 silver laced, one brown laced, one blue-white crested and on black white crested. I know the blue white crested and the black white crested are hens simply because of their crest they are like little pom poms on the top of their heads but the 2 laced polish are confusing me. Let me know what you think please and thank you A2F72F4A-E2EE-4674-90CE-6ED867845C64.jpeg A2F72F4A-E2EE-4674-90CE-6ED867845C64.jpeg haihai2.jpg moana1.jpg moana2.jpg

    Laced polish have crazier hairdos compared to white crested varieties. I currently see nothing that looks rooster.

    This is a picture of my Silver Laced Polish, who everyone so far has been saying hen. I've heard that if their crests hang back a bit more, like this, then it's a hen. Males tend to have funkier hairdos when it comes to Polish.
    Hopefully this helps. So far I don't see any obvious cocks.
