    Can anyone help me to figure out what my polish is? I am assuming this is a roo but want to know for sure. I will try to post a couple of pictures.

    How old? From those wattles I say cockerel, but that bird certainly looks from a hatchery, and hatchery hens can have wattles like that. . .

    Also, look at the comb - Does it rise up in the back, or scoop up to the front? It looks like it sort of scoops up and out to the front, which means it is a girl. [​IMG]

    It was ordered as a hen but my guess is also a roo. I didn't have much luck in my hen order. Out of 12 hens ordered 4 are roo's so far. I will certainly look Illia. Maybe there is still hope.
    Thanks everyone.
