    Too early to tell yet I'm afraid. It can be 3 -6 months to know for sure.

    Nice chicks you have there :D

    Thank you! Oh ok! They seem to be smaller than other baby chicks I have had in the past at 4:5 weeks. The woman I bought them from said they were standard size. Do you think that is correct? Do they just grow slower/thinner than other chicks?

    They look to be standard size to me, I have both standard and bantam polish. There is a difference but not much of one.

    Here is a standard size Tolbunt polish chick (4 weeks) in the back right of the pic against two bantam Pekin/Cochin chicks (6 weeks) ~

    The blue birds in the pic are standard and the gold lace are bantam ~

    adorable chicks - their crests look like the old shaving(cream) brush my dad used to use.

    My Polish are 7 weeks. The grey polish has developed some red on his beak, at the base, and tiny red waffles.
    The golf polish doesn't have these red marks. Any guesses on the sex? [​IMG]

    Could you get a side view of them please? Even though the blue has wattles the tail says pullet to me.

    The gold lace I can't see the tail but the crest says pullet to me.
