    I know what breeds these little ones are, and I know they are too young to sex. I just wanted to share them.[​IMG]

    3 & 4 looks like someone put a scoop of whipped cream on their heads. They are sweet enough to eat.

    no. 1 has a toe missing or curled under his right foot. The picture won't enlarge so I could see it more clearly. You may want to fix that.

    Are nos.5 & 6 younger than no.1, they are slow in feathering out - may be a sign of future cockerels)

    No 3 & 4 are definitely Polish. Looking at how round the pompom, i predict no 3 is a girl. I have read somewhere that baby Polish with round pompom 'usually' is a girl and a more oval one is 'usually' a boy. I took pics of my baby polish (day old) and the theory is proven right in my case. Some people say don't hold to it. I bought more Polish with rounded pompom, both turned out girls again. So, make believe :) No 1,5,6 also look like Polish. No. 2 has some feather on the legs? Maybe Brahma? Or is that a shade, not feather?
    By the way, I looooooove my Polish chickens. They're funny and super friendly and kind of smart. I love the Polish more than my Silkies and Buff Orpington. I really spoil my Polish.
    Once they bond with you, they know you, and they're glued to you like a dog. Even my rooster is tame. I never thought i would fall in love with Polish, let alone a rooster. I bought Polish because they're funny looking. But, boy oh boy, I fell in love hard with them! Silkies are cute and gentle, but they're kind of dumb. Ha ha. And the orpington, they're all playful and nice, they also bond to human so quickly like the Polish, but they're just OK looking.... Lol. I love all my chickens regardless, love love love. But my favorite breed is the Polish.

    No.1 does have curled toes and has little "sandal's" to try and correct the issue. I was told that they were all last weeks hatch. No.2 does have feathering on the legs and we have named "him" boss.
