    This silver laced polish will be 5 weeks old in a few days. Any ideas if it's looking more like a roo or pullet? Or still too young to tell?

    This is like an election... too close to call! I too have a Polish that's 6 weeks old and I believe "HE" is a roo. Looking at yours and simply trying to make a judgement call, I'd have to say pullet b/c of the somewhat more uniform crest and NOT a long, lanky body type. Is yours a bantam or standard size bird? Mine is a bantam. Also, where did you find it... so darn cute! I love the Silver Laced Polish, used to have them has a kid growing up when I showed poultry through FFA. Keep us posted! Here's a pic of "Tucker" our White Crested Black Polish. We can compare :)

    Your polish is adorable!! I've always loved the look of a polish!

    I got him/her from My pet chicken. I had requested all females, but of course I know it's not 100% guarantee. It is a standard size polish. [​IMG]

    Thank you for the picture compliments! I enjoy photography and I enjoy chickens, so I hope they get used to the camera quickly.

    And darn, I was really hoping this was a pullet!!
