    These guys are my 3 silver laced bantam polish...they are about umm... 2 1/2 months?...3 maybe?...lol I LOVE them! Photos were taken last night! Can anyone tell me gender? (and then tell me how you know...lol) Oh and they managed to get their crests wet....so that's why their crests look a little wierd...

    First one might be a girl the rest are roos. Pullets should have round head feathers ( head should have the shape of a baseball) Roos will have V shaped head feathers.

    It's so hard to tell how their crest feathers are shaped b/c when they got them wet they stayed shaped funny [​IMG] I'm ok with 2 roo's and a pullet.....really I want one of each...if all 3 are roo's I guess that's ok too I'd just keep one....but I'd like for one to be a pullet!

    I was looking through your pictures with my 2-year old daughter looking on, she just about bugged out over those funky chicken hair-styles. They are so cute! They are all lovely looking chickies [​IMG]
