    I was thinking that this one was female but now I'm suspecting it's male. Any ideas?
    He/she was hatched May 14th. (Just over 14 weeks old)

    All the pics are of the same bird:

    She is a beautiful little girl, the crest feathers look to be roundish rather than spyki.

    I don't know enough yet about the Polish to say for sure, but I have to say that is one GLORIOUS looking bird! I just got 4 teeny weenies and I'm hoping they all look half that good when they're older.[​IMG]

    Oh, that's great to hear!! I thought she was a girl until I went to take pics and then I wasn't sure.

    Like everyone else has said, definitely pullet! At this age, if it were a cockeral, he'd have the long trailing feathers, large red wattles, & he might even be crowing. And just in case there was any doubt about it being bantam or LF, it is definitely LF. I know specifically which LF hen that pullet came from just by looking at her--I only have two hens in my LF pen at the moment and there are enough slight differences in their offspring that I can tell who belongs to who once they mature a bit.

    She's a beauty! If it had been a male, it would have looked more like this (my Prince at 14 weeks, and crowing):
