It is 25 weeks old. Hasn't crowed but hasn't layed any eggs. I'm really confused.
that's a rooster! sorry! the pointy crest and pointy saddle feathers give it away!
i imagine he'll be crowing shortly..
you got a rooster.
OH DARN! He was my surprise chick from murray mcmurray. I thought he was a she because he would always be scared of everyone. Hes at the bottom of the pecking order.
Hehehe thats becouse of his crest. all the others always goes for the ones with the biggest and wildest crest.
when they have such a big crest, they can't see as well. i had a polish once that was at the bottom because she would run into things. i trimmed her crest back and she moved up a bit in the pecking order.
Here is my free chick from Murray McMurray. He is a silverlaced polish roo. He started crowing at about 12 weeks old. Even though he is a roo he seems to be on the bottom of the pecking order. But he is a gentile young man and we are happy to have him. But like every one else here stated yours is a definite cockerel.
i thought i finally could tell the difference in polish hens and roos. i knew the first on this thread was a roo but i really thought the second pic was a hen.
Quote:don't worry about it. a pic from just the face can be deceiving. the saddle feathers are what REALLY gives away "hen" or "roo"...
