    I ordered 4 polish chicks that where sexed as females. I am wondering about the one being a roo and not a hen. I might just be over thinking it so I thought I would ask you guys [​IMG] The feathers on the heads of three of them are more of a puff. The other ones feathers run down the head of the chick. The last two are of the chick I am not sure about.

    UPDATE: His little comb is coming in. Tallulah is now Aretemis LOL [​IMG] I will try to post pics later

    Thanks For All The Help:)

    It is harder to tell with hatchery chicks. Give them a little longer and post pics again.

    Quote:Exactly what I was thinking. Especially when looking at combs - Naturally and to the standard, a pullet/hen should have little to NO comb what so ever, but in hatcheries a pullet can have a comb big enough to make it look like a cockerel.

    Quote:Really? I was hoping that would be a girl. The head feathers have just started coming in. I was really hoping for all girls I really don't want a rooster. [​IMG]

    Last two look masculine; the previous one I cannot tell from that angle.
