    I'm pretty sure this one is a roo:

    Here he is again:

    This one I'm not so sure about. She's more scared, so it was hard to get a good pic.
    Her wattles are getting red, too, but her poof has more rounded feathers. So, any experts out there?

    OMG! I think Mr Lincoln would die of laughter in his grave!

    Cute names!

    I think both of them are pullets since I dont see any V featherings in their neck feathers or hackle feathers either. And their hairdos dont have the long whisp, narrow V shaped feathers on them either. Looks more rounded than pointed.

    I could be wrong there!

    I am thinking both are pullets too though it is harder to tell with that first one. A male should have a more hatched shaped crest.

    First bird cockerel and for the last one I am also leaning towards cockerel. But I would love to be wrong, how old are they in these photos?

    Atwoods store. I think they got them from Randall Burkey Company, since they list Red Crested Red Polish Bantams as one of their breeds. I really hope one is a hen. [​IMG]

    I think the 2nd is a pullet. #1 I'd have to see the tail, but I think the black in front of the crest looks more 'spikey' like a boy.
