    x2....I'm pretty sure that polish are NOT one of the breeds that you can feather sex. However, you can make a guess by how high the nostrils are on the beak. Polish can difficult to sex until they get their adult feathers in.

    Pullet white crested black. She won't have much black on her crest in the front based on the size of the black spot. Good luck with her & post pictures!
