    I have a 12 week old naked neck chicken and what I believe to be a white crested Polish chicken and as a first time chicken raiser I have no idea if they are male or female. I've tried to do research online but it seems to be very conflicting information. We inherited these from my son's 2nd grade hatching project. Any help greatly appreciated!

    Both are cute.. and look female in these pics. :love

    Can you post a pic of them standing from the side with their saddles very visible?

    I don't have a good side shot of either, they are camera shy! But here's one of the naked neck from last night perching on a branch. 20180710_195839.jpg

    I would still have to say female for 12 weeks old, based on comb and waddle development.

    I would keep an eye out... I feel like I'm seeing more scales lifted than I should for the age and so would be watching for scaly leg mite.

    Sometimes it makes me crazy that people don't keep their colors pure for breeding.. But that's a pretty cool pattern on her bow tie. :pop

    What makes you say cockerel on the naked neck? Is it the feathers? Just still trying to figure it all out! Now the one who I thought for sure (the black chicken in the picture here) was a cockerel I'm not so sure about either!
