    hello.
    i love polish chickens. my best friend is my polish roo "Hats" in my avatar. i recently bought some new polands, and i think they are Tolbunts, but am not sure. i know they are all pullets though.they are around 3 months, but i am not sure of the exact age. here are some pics...

    i have one last question. they are all getting spur buds. i thought only roosters got those. are they actually cocks? it would be a bummer. as i already have 6 cockerels, i would have to give away some. (don't worry, they have enough hens. but i would like to have a lot of hens, and a little amount of roos...even though i love them all, and it would break my heart to lose some.)
    thanks!

    I'd say they are Tolbunt/Gold Laced cross.

    All chickens have spur buds. Some hens develop spurs and some roosters don't. Some breeds both genders get spurs and often have more than one spur on a single foot. You can't determine gender by looking at the spur buds, sorry. And I'm not sure on your chicks. Sorry.

    thanks! i am pretty sure they are female. they have rounded crests/feathers. also pretty much no wattle development.
