    Hi all! I've got two new little ones. They're probably about 6 weeks old. I've not had these breeds before (Welsummer & Polish) so their gender has me stumped.

    The Welsummer I'm thinking girl, although the legs are pretty large. But again, not sure.

    The Polish I'm afraid is a male. Any ideas? His/her crest is still coming in, but that tail, legs, and feathers have me wondering. Sorry the pics aren't the best. They're out and about in the wide wide world for the first time today, and don't want to hold still.

    Edited to add better pics of the Polish down below:

    neck feathers on the polish look pointed in the new pics which would make it a roo...can you try and get a clear pic of those neck feathers please.
