    This guy has me wondering it's a tiny bit bigger then the one below but has a much shorter tail then the one I think is a roo.

    The bottom does seem very roo-ish, but keep an eye on that hen. She may suprise you; I'm still thinking there's a chance she's a boy.

    How can you tell with these guys? The rooish one has had tiny pink waddle since I got thim, the other two don't although some are late bloomers, the roo also has a tail 2x as long although all 3 have tons of feathering to still do. My dh said I can keep him;)

    The top hats of the top two are more compact then the roo, also the feet/legs are smaller/thinner. I wish they could come sexlinked lol:)

    When I got the chicks the breeder said they were 8 weeks, we have had them for a week or so now so they are 9 weeks, shouldn't they have large waddles or something like I see in other pictures or are these immature for their age? they have taken for ever to get thier feathers,the feathers also seem brittle.

    I go by the top hat if it is rounded it is useally a hen if it is more pointy anad wild it is a rooster.

    I hope atleast one is a girl, all I really wanted was one but I figured if I got 3 atleast one would be a girl. Polish are easy to rehome.
