    I bought 4 Polish this spring. They are now 11 weeks old. We are having a very difficult time telling the sexes apart. I believe I have two female and two males but I am not positive. Please help this is driving me insane.[​IMG]

    Pictures of the heads on each would help, since the head feathers can usually determine sex at this age.

    With Polish, the "messy doos are roos" and the "Pretty Perfect Poof-heads" are Pullets.

    So yes, I think you're right, 2 roos and 2 pullets. The blue is definitely a pullet, and I think the white crested black is too. The buff and the black/orange one look like roos to me. Could you get pics of those two facing the camera with their heads up?
