    I have 9 Polish and this one is the only with waddles, does anyone know if it might be a male? They are 7 weeks old.

    Some of the Polish Pullets have waddles. I say Pullet. She has a rounded crest. The Roo's have more pointy crest.

    7 weeks is pretty early for such huge wattles if it's a pullet. What kind of tail feathers does it have? My wcb Polish rooster got green/black glossy tail feathers shortly after he sprouted fast growing red wattles.

    my polish roo is about that age

    here he is [​IMG]

    mine has red wattles about that size but his crest is like a mop compared to a hens rounded crest. both hen and roo have long tails but roos roos have pointy ones
    my guess is roo because those wattles look very unnatural for that to be a pullet there are some roos with rounded crests im pretty sure though... again it could be a girly not sure this is a hard one... lift up the crest and check to see if the V comb is reddish, if so it is probably a roo the hens are very small and yellowish.
    hope this helps, bay
