    I have a Buff Laced Polish chick that is 2 weeks old. I know you can tell roo's from hen's very early because of hair doo's. But, I only have one so I don't have any thing to compare to. The chick has a perfect Mohawk that is about 1" tall [​IMG] Does that tell anyone what gender it might be?

    Thanks in advance for your reply. [​IMG]

    Looks like what my rooster did when he was a chick.

    too young, they say you can tell at a couple days - then when the feathers start in, you have to wait till the crest is filling in well (atleast til around 6 weeks) to get an idea.

    I ordered them off ebay. I had 15 eggs and that was the only one that hatched. I guess the PO was not as gentle as I would like them to be. He is for my friend that has 3 hens. That's why it would be great if he was a he [​IMG]
