    8 weeks might be a little early yet for a Polish, but I vote girl!

    From what it looks and sounds like on the video I think she is a Pullet. She sounds too Squeaky to me to be a Cockerel. Most my Cockerels sound more deep like a goose at young age. Maybe someone else can give their opinion.

    Well that would make me feel better if it was a pullet... I have a bunch of pullets I ordered turning out to be roos... So that would thrill me that she is a pullet....

    I handle all our birds; I have found the cockerels tend to be heavier then their comparably age pullet siblings. Do you have pictures of the other birds her age? I am curious to see their head feather with regard to this girl. She has very large head feathers for a hen but I could be wrong. Most of my hens look like bobble heads while our polish rooster looks like Tina Turner with the big hairdo.

    Can't see much of her in this picture, but looks like a Pullet to me?

    Yeah I am sure the white crested one is a pullet- I am not sure about my silver laced.. Their crest look so different!
