    I picked these guys up from someone who had no idea what they were and estimated their ages to be somewhere between 3 and 4 months, though not all the same. I'm fairly certain they're at least part Polish, but please correct me if I'm wrong. Any ideas on sex?

    They look like white crested black polish to me. I have two of them. I could be wrong though, because I'm a newbie :)

    And I am unsure of the sex part.

    Thanks! Someone on another thread (bad form, I'm sorry. Will stick to just one in future) suggested they all look like pullets. I hope they're right-- I'll be a little heart broken if I have to rehome a roo.

    I'm glad they said they look like pullets because they look just like mine haha so that's good news for both of us (hopefully) because i can't have roos and I would also be very sad to have to rehome. Ive become really attached to my chicks haha

    Hi all, These two are 13 weeks, and I'm not sure if I'm at a point where they are the same, or I will still be able to have one each. I'm hoping for one each, but will be happy with two girls, as the hatchery I got them from only has a rooster and I could possibly do a loan/trade for breeding. Any help to say yeah or nay would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    John M.

    Hi Jacko here, I have. Six black white crested polish in my incubator due to hatch on
    The 8/27/15 about two weeks time I will let you have pics then, one way of sexing these birds at that age is spread the wing feathers and see if it has two rows of main flight feathers if it has it's probably a cockerel, it worked for me in the past, let me know how you get on, cheers. Jacko
