    I have 5 Polish chicks that are about 7 weeks old. I bought them from a feed store, where I figured I got all boys, but I'm more hopeful now, and I want to share to get some options, as these are my first polish.

    These aren't the best pictures. I offered them mealworms and just picked one up at a time for a quick picture. [​IMG]

    Chick #1 - My favorite! I believe she's a she, and I would like to name her Flower now. So pullet? [​IMG]

    Chick #2 - Cockerel?

    Chick #3 - Cockerel?

    Chick #5 - Pullet? This one is the smallest one.

    With my chickies!
    It would probably be easier to tell if there was more than a head in the picture... just saying!

    I'm guessing sex by their crests. 2 have the crazy do's, and the other 3 have rounded do's.

    Thanks for the replies. Yeah, I will be pretty happy with 3 girls, if they don't go changing on me. [​IMG]

    I agree that 2 and 3 are cockerels. Seven weeks was the point in time when my Polish cockerel developed noticeable redness and waddles while the pullet did not.
