    I have 3, 6 week old polish and have NO idea how to tell wether they are pullets or cockerals. Our other polish came to us as adults and it is very obvious who is what! Any tips on sexing them at that age. here are some pictures of them. [​IMG] [​IMG]#1

    I think they are a bit young to tell... but when I had a few, the roos would have pointy head feathers while females were more rounded, give it a few more weeks and see who is larger than the rest and has flowier feathers.

    Both are Roosters. The Roosters have streamer looking feathers on their heads and hens have fluffy heads that look like they just took out their hair rollers.
