    Okay my Buff Laced Polish are 3 weeks old today, I have noticed that one has not gotten a nice big Poof on its head yet. The other one looks like it should, like its having abad hair day [​IMG] Now these are straight run chicks, could one be a male Vs a female, or are they just growing at different rates??? I wouldnt mind a polish rooster. Just curious Realy.


    here are the pics of my two babies!

    Not that I claim to be any expert since my first ever chicks are 2 weeks old and 4 weeks old, but I have 3 polish in my group. 2 are supposed to be pullets and the other is the free rare chick, so I assume he's a he. The buff laced polish is the he, the white crested black polish and silver laced polish should be she's. My boy has much more feather development on his head and body (2 1/2 weeks old) than the females.

    You can see mine a bit in the background on my recent post:

    Looks like a boy and a girl to me, but its been 20 years since I've had polish chicks.

    The males crest will grow spikey and punkish. The female's crest with come in more rounded like a powder puff.
