    Male or female? The more I look at pics the more I think female.

    The males crest is much more spiky looking, correct?

    Yes, if it was a cockerel it would have thinner, pistule-like streamers coming from inside the crest. Also the comb would stick out more prominently. Tolblunt's are my favorite Polish BTW. Plan on getting a few pretty soon so I'm jealous lol
