    Yes, I know Polish, BUT - sex? 6 weeks old on Friday. This is Phyllis. Obviously NOT a bantam [​IMG] Any chance I might have a pullet? I Really would rather NOT have a BBQ!

    So far, I would certainly say pullet - Ours looked exactly like this at that age. I think the white crested blacks are the most distinguished in gender, with the males very different. (even when young)

    That one is tough. Right now, I, too, would say pullet, but I really wouldn't be sure. It is really hard to tell without more of the same age to compare to.

    I actually think you have a roo. I have 3 the exact same age as yours and I believe I have 2 hens and a roo. Your looks much more like my roo than my pullets.
    Heres a pic of my roo, I know its not a grest pic but it looks just like yours.

    and here is a pic of 1 of my girls a much fuller hairdo than yours.
