    I have 2 polish- a white crested and a silver laced. My white crested is for sure a pullet (very round crown)

    Here is my silver laced- any ideas?? He/she was born around July 17th. (6 weeks old)

    Well..... I figured that- [​IMG] But I was really praying it was not- just had crest that has not rounded out yet! lol... A girl can hope right? Not that I care so much that he is a cock, it is more that I ordered a second set all pullets and so far I have 2 of the 8 are roos. So that puts my total flock at 17- with 4 of them roos! YIKES... And I am still questioning my two RIRs.

    I don't know if I would care so much if they were free rangers year round- but we live in N. Michigan and it will start snowing here in November and not let up until March. So- they spend a lot of time in a closed area.
