    I am hoping someone can give me an opinion? I am starting to notice differences between them. Chick 4 I am suspicious of being a cockerel...he's the only one with a sign of a comb. Any opinions? If nothing else, enjoy the pictures!!! [​IMG]

    One and Four look like Roosters. The others look like pullets. Give it 3 to 4 weeks and I have a better Idea.

    They all look like boys to me. But they are still very young, so it's hard to tell

    I noticed that my cockerel had less of a headdress when he was younger. The girls filled out in a nice full "hat." The boy's "hat" was less full and was more spiky.

    I have played the guessing game with our Polish, and have been wrong 100% of the time [​IMG]

    We have a white crested black who I swore must be a pullet, but he crowed the other day. Our of 5, we have three unkowns at almost 12 weeks [​IMG] Time will tell....they are really hard to sex. Sorry [​IMG]
