    I am no expert. We have 3 pullets and a cockeral polish. The males have spikey/stringy hair and the girls is tighter and more round like the 2nd photo with the black and white polish. I am going to guess you have pullets based on the poof.

    Yep, girls. By that age you should be seeing a spikey doo and waddles if any were boys.
  5. i would guess all females. My rooster had very obvious red wattles by that age, and he was crowing.

  8. So pretty, all of them. i wish i could have polish, but my EE developed the habit of yanking out my Polish's head feathers. i rehomed him to a dude ranch before he was totally bald.

    None of mine look even close to your boy. They are beautiful by the way. None of mine even look like your girl, LOL. I think I need to wash mine, over the past few days they got into a mud pit and look terrible. Here are the 4 I need to sex since everytime I take a pic, I think differently, LOL. I also put this on the other BYC site. I really need to determine who I am keeping by Saturday. I may have to keep all until I can tell for sure. LOL. Thanks for looking.

    How do you wash them? My frizzle polish crests get dirty and stuff after I feed them yogurt, and things like that. I also heard about tieing up their crests, has anyone done anything like this with hair cliops or anything? I also wanted to ask about clipping their wings some? I am afraid mine will fly over my fence or something..maybe they dont fly that high, but seems like they could?
