    Hi, I'm new here, my first post.
    This Polish is my free rare chick from McMurray. It is 8 weeks old. Do you think it's a pullet or cockerel?

    I would definitely say cockerel.

    That's a cockerel. You can tell because of the pointy crest feathers, and the pointy hackle and saddle (back near tail) feathers.

    Thanks so much. I thought he is likely a cockerel. What made me wonder is that he almost exclusively hangs out with the girls and never joins in on the cockerel games. I guess he's just more in touch with his feminine side :)
