    I keep going back and forth on gender.
    I was so *sure* she's a she.
    Now at almost 7 weeks, not so much.
    Roo?

    i had to same problem my chewie is the same age and had a major mohawk but then i noticed some of her feathers were missing and now that they are coming in her do is starting to lay down and she doesn't have any roo signs like my other polish does who is getting a red v shaped comb and bright red waddles i'm going to guess your girl is a roo

    Awesome bird by the way, what type of polish is he? I have a silver laced polish that we discovered was a roo, which was annoying....

    Not sure, a gold laced I guess? I am kicking myself for not getting several Polish when I bought my chicks at the local feed store(Atwoods).
    Pierogi is such a sweetie and I can't find Polish chicks anywhere now. I want more Polish!
    Someone mentioned the saddle feathers. I'm not seeing any on her/him.
    I did just find 2 small, pale horn type thingys in front of the 'do.
    Is this the beginning of a comb, a sure sign of roo, or what?
