    Got this little cutie from a local feed store in a bin marked "assorted crested chicks." S/he was straight run, and is 8 weeks old. I have been haunting these forums for any clues to gender, so I thought I would just ask: Any thoughts? I'm guessing (hoping) pullet. :) Thanks!

    Looks like a pullet , males will usually have the crest feathers all over the place , females will usually have them tight in a puffy mushroom for an example :)

    at this point in time looks like a pullet. But polish are very difficult to sex early. Her crest could start popping out wild streamers any day now - which would swing the pendulum to cockerel

    Thanks for weighing in! She's my seven year old's favorite, hoping we get to keep her. :)
