    I have a white crested black polish and was wondering if they are any easier to sex than silkies?
    Here's a picture of our little...thing.
    Thanks everyone![​IMG]

    i'd say girl, because of the rounded crested feathers and her comb is still undeveloped.

    OH that would be awesome if it is. I'm not familiar with this breed and the lady at our feed store gave it to my daughter as a chick because she was so in love with it.
    Yay! Glad they aren't like silkies with the wait and see approach!

    Thanks again!!

    My vote is pullet. You posted on my thread to sex my WCB...yours crest feathers are more rounded at the ends than mine, also I don't see any wattles developed yet. I bet mine is a roo [​IMG], and yours is a hen! How old is yours?

    I don't know BaGAWK...yours could just be a early developing girl. This one is...something like 11 weeks old? Sorry we got a bunch of chicks staggered with ages and I can't keep them straight.

    Thanks Pekin!
