    I'm such a dummy - picked this white crested polish out of 4 available ones a couple days ago, they all had identical crests but I forgot to look at the legs [​IMG]

    The owner said they were about 3 weeks old, but she wasn't sure.

    Hatchery stock, of course.

    Now that I have Elvis home, with those tree-trunk legs and the beginnings of tiny spurs... and he's "in your face" aggressive and bossy... ugh.

    If you can confirm there is no chance HE might be a SHE, my friend will take him back on Wednesday.

    I confess I don't like him much at all [​IMG]

    It does have Thick legs, but then again i have seen pullets with pretty thick legs.
    Still over all I am leaning towards Roo.
    Still a bit young to tell for sure

    thanks peeps!

    my gut says it's a boy... if it's a girl she's one bossy butch! LOL!

    if i'm right i'll have to sell him, not many of his breed available around these parts so crossing fingers all goes well.
