11 week old polish. Help. Rooster or hen?
Have some of the crest feathers been cut? Some look cut off in straight lines. It will be hard to say male or female if the have been trimmed. If they havent been trimmed I would say female.
I'm looking at saddle feathers, I find that is the best way to sex Polish who's crests haven't filled out or are trimmed. I'm going to say pullet. They look rounded from what I can see. Any way you could get a close up picture of saddle feathers?
A lot of breeds don't start getting them in until 12 weeks, and this one is only 11. My polish rooster didn't get saddle feathers in until 14 weeks.
Here are some pictures while she was barely trimmed.
Looks like a pullet, but update in two weeks, lots of characteristics can show themselves in two weeks, especially at this age.
I notice new feathers. Are they saddle feathers? Does that mean I have a rooster?
