    I have heard you can tell in some breeds if a chick is male or female as soon as they are dry from hatching. Or at least you can get a good idea if a chick is a roo or pullet. Is this true and is there a way with Polish chicks? If so how. Also how old before you can tell if a Polish is a frizzle or not? Thanks, Kristina

    I've already looked through all the post I can't seem to find anything on newly hatched chicks and how to tell if they are male or female or frizzled....Thanks
