    We have a Polish approx 7 weeks old, can anyone give us a hand in figuring out if it is a hen or rooster.... first time we have hatched a Polish, got the eggs from a guy, he had a Polish rooster and various breed hens.
    Thanks[​IMG]

    My first guess would be pullet. The crest doesn't look too much like a roosters crest, the stance is feminine, and the coloring is even (males have a more spotchy color pattern). Could you post a picture of its head (facing it from the front)? This way, I can see the size and color of the comb, and have a better look at the crest.

    Yes, she looks like a pullet so far.

    Kind of what we figured too, but like I said, we are new to this breed. Thanks for the input.
