    Your "Polish" is a mixed breed. The crest, comb, and color are wrong for a purebred Polish. As for the gender, it is a cockerel.

    Looks like a pretty hen to me. The crest is round and there aren't any wattles yet. My hens all didn't get any till they were just about to lay and even then they were quite small.
