    He/she was hatched Feb 27th so is now almost 9 months old and hasn't crowed or layed an egg yet. I thought it was a pullet but not sure now. Any suggestions?

    I believe it's a pullet as there are no male characteristics, such as the pointed saddle feathers, or larger wattles.

    Definitely pullet.. Like all the others have said, not sure why she hasnt laid yet? Have you tried putting an egg in the nest to let her know what YOU expect her to do?.. LOL

    Pullet but they lay really poorly, still you should have had an egg by now.

    I've had golf balls in the nests for months now and all the other girls have been laying since July/Aug. I don't really know anthing about Polish except that they only lay maybe 2-3 eggs/week but I think she should have started by now.[​IMG]

    Do you free range? If so, maybe she's found a nest of her own to lay her eggs?

    No free ranging either. Too many hawks
