I have two, 5 week old polish- one White Crested and one Silver Laced. My question is does the crest come in different for pullets v's cockerels? My SLed looks like a Mohawk and my WCed looks like a huge cotton ball.
If they are hatchery chicks, you CAN NOT go by the crest shape as it is coming in! It is totally different with them than with breeder Polish. I have also noticed that, with the exception of the BL Polish, the laced and Tolbunts seem to get the mohawk look at first, no matter the gender.
Interesting fact, i had no idea
I found mine so i don't know where it came from.
I only assume someone let it loose once they discovered it was a rooster because i put up signs and no one claimed it.
