    Ok so I could not resist these little fuzzy heads. I think they are polish but the guy from orschlen said they were out of those. So what are these exactly? Also any hints on what I would look for with this breed on gender.

    I don't know anything about polish but I do have a few chicks and those look like mine when they were younger.

    Well here is crossing my fingers we both have polish then. The tank was labeled and thats the breed they look like but the guy at orschlin was very positive they were out of polish so now I am not so sure.( fingers crossed)

    They've all got clean legs and feet, right? No feathers? So no houdans or sultans or silkies. Definitely polish! Look like buff-laced and gold-laced. Cute babies!

    They are adorable. I have these and my silkie in the house. I pick different ones to sit on my computer desk and hang out with me at night.

    So one yellow one I think is male cause the little stink is so agressive and keeps trying to ride my silkie. I have an older one though who already is feathing out on head ( he kinda looks like he has devil horns atm) and its wings are feathered out and has a fair amount of tail feathers. This one the only large one at the feed store and I felt bad because the little ones were picking at it. How long till I can start guessing gender on this one. I honestly think its a girl. Granted I want it to be a girl so I have may not be objective. It has such beautiful coloring though. like a mocha brown and black. so pretty. I hope to tame it like the silkie. The silkie already has found that it likes sitting on our shoulders. It thinks its a parrot.
