    I honestly am not sure if my little Frodo is old enough to sex yet, but any help or tips would be appreciated!

    Way too young. Post more photos when it's 3-4 months of age.

    Polish are a bit harder than other breeds. Yours looks to be a white crested? Those are easier to sex by the crest shape as they get a bit older.

    Oh poor thing, those are always uncomfortable for them. Hope they grow in quickly.

    I know, wish I could be helpful in relieving them, but ever since his/her case of pasty butt, s/he didn't trust me as much anymore

    I don't think any of my chicks trust me. They do when they get older though.

    My 'daughter's' Langshan is the most trusting of me to the point she constantly flutters on my head

    Just a few more pin feathers and Frodo will have a beautiful full head of fluff
