    Not trying to bother anyone, just never got any replies. These are more recent pictures. Ive never owned a polish before, and I am stumped over this one. I think it is a hen, but it has so many saddle feathers coming in. She/He is the strangest chicken we have ever owned(and thats alot lol). It randomly freaks out and runs around and "tries" to fly.

    Polish are a nutty breed, they are very flighty and prone to being hysterical, trimming the crest can help a bit. I would say it's a rooster by it's saddle feathers too, though I can't see a comb. I haven't owned the gold laced variety yet, but my buff laced hens don't have tail feathers like that. You may just have to wait and see if it crows.
