What age can you tell gender? I have three white polish chicks (well, they're really getting up in age - about 3 months) and have no clue on their gender. No wattles or combs yet but some funky hairdos. A little aggressive behaviour as well.

When do they get their combs/wattles and tail feathers?

Do you have pics?? You know I had to ask..LOL.
You may be able to tell now depending on what the "do" is looking like. The boys will have a punk rocker kind of look to the feathers on their head, the girls will have a bonnet look.


Here is a picture of my girl at about 3 months old



This is a picture of my old buff laced polish roo, he was bearded so you couldn't see the wattles..

Here's a pic of my pullet and cockerel silver-laced polish, around 12 or 13 weeks old. I also have a white polish, 13 weeks old tomorrow, and her comb is not spiky at all. She's very rounded, and her hairdo looks like the silver-laced pullet in this pic. Sorry, I don't have a recent pic of her.
