    I'm guessing little roo, DH says girl.

    What do you think? This little baby is about 14 or 15 weeks old now..Very friendly for the most part, but has been starting to try to jump on my hand (and not in a good way, its when I'm picking up the other babies), and if it's an aggressive little roo, he's outta here. [​IMG] I sent three off to the dinner table today, and I'll do it again! [​IMG]
    I took these pics when he walked into my house and made himself at home last weekend.

    Quote:Hah thats what I was thinking. Head looks like a roo, but no curving tail feathers yet. He is a hatchery bird though, so I guess I'm asking too much. Great, Punkin, the gender confused chicken.

    those blacke tipped, pointy hackle feathers on the neck sure look like a boy.

    Hummm, crest is very rounded, nothing on the tail but there are little wattles there. Hard to tell yet. I would not send it to the dinner table yet. You have had some aggressive Polish? I haven't seen a single one of my Polish be aggessive.

    I meant to say, how much I love its color and I would love to have it, but then I love all Polish, lol.

    Yeah and the wattles haven't gotten much bigger over the past few weeks. My other 2 polish aren't aggressive at all, these are our first 3 ever. I [​IMG] them!!

    [​IMG]I thought at roo at first, also, but the more I look... I don't see the horns yet. But the hair looks to be spiky like a roo. Could be too early but you'll know for sure soon. I have an aggressive Polish rooster... downright nasty. I love the colors, too, it's a beauty!
