    I went out just now and took some more pictures... maybe these will help? He/she has a more spiky head than my White Crested Black Polish, but not nearly a s spiky/crazy as other Polish roos I've seen pictures of. I'm so confused.

    Previous post/pictures:

    I hadn't given any thought to this Golden Laced Polish being a rooster until it started making a huge racket recently. Is this another boy? He/she would be almost 5 months old at this point.

    This picture is from when he/she was younger:

    If this is yet another roo from our "pullets only" run, I may scream a little. [​IMG]

    I am going to differ with the other two and say pullet. At 5 months, the roo would be much darker in the hackle and saddle area and also in the crest. The crest would be stringy-er along with pointed hackle and saddle feathers.

    So how exactly can you tell? I can see some saddle feathers and the feathers on his head are a little pointed but not super pointy? Hmm I'm confused. Tips please! Also do hens have spurs in this or any breed
