    Any guesses with these two Tolbunt Polish? The smaller white crested one is actually a little older. They are about 8 weeks and they look very different. Different tail set, different crest. [​IMG]

    Does anyone have an idea as to what color and what sex this little guy may be? I'm thinking he is about 5-6 weeks old. Thanks in advance![​IMG]

    Thank you! Yes I figured. This is him now. He's made a pretty boy.[​IMG] Some people think Pullet but until he lays an egg I'm going with boy. Lol[​IMG]

    Anyone care to guess on my WCB Bantam Polish??? These 2 are always together. Sorry for the not so great pic but they are the most high strung birds I've ever owned!

    This one has the larger wattles, but they're not very red at this point. Thanks in advance[​IMG]

    Hatched my first polish today and it’s totally black. Yep from head to toe peak and all. Is this normal coloring? Moms black with white head and dads black and white(splash I believe). So question is will the head turn white like mama I’d hen? Has anyone seen on totally black as adult? Either sex?
