    This is one of the results from the misc. eggs I got out here from a fellow at the end of the school year. I think it is a she, I have two, one with the fluffy head and one with the same coloring but looks like a fluffy mohawk. This a sweet bird and loves to be held and cuddled. This is also the first time I used the upload on here so I'm hoping it worked:

    this is just a wild guess, but I would say she's a she. and definitely a polish if thats what you were asking also...

    Thanks, yes I'm hoping I'm right on the she and on the Polish! I've got to a pic of Spike, the other one. This one is being called Polly at the moment, unless it turns out to be a he,,, then it's Paul, because it answers to it's name quite well.

    def a female. A roo would never have that much of and that even of a head dress. A roos feathers on the poof are much pointier.

    It looks like a she to me. My polish are very loving birds and will sit on my shoulder while I feed the rest of the coops. I have 26 of them. The Roos are huge! Have fun!

    OMG! Forgive me for laughing but that is the wildest headdress I've seen since the last time we went to Vegas!

    How old is she? She looks so tiny on your hand. What an amazing bird.

    I'm clueless about breed or gender, but had to comment on her gorgeousness.

    Huge? I think mine are small, they came from tiny little eggs! Are there Bantam Polish? I'm going to try and get a pic of Spike,, he hates to be woke up though!
