    ... Actually, they are cockerels, 11 weeks old, and they are really coming along nicely. Unfortunately I can only keep one in the long term, and in the next couple of months I'll have to make a final decision about which one stays. If the quality is there, I am interested in breeding at some point farther down the line, so that is the main point in my asking here. Temperament-wise, they are both docile and easily handled.

    I don't know the standards for Polish, but they are both beautiful birds!

    Pretty young still. Hard to tell at that age. Give them some time to fill out some more.

    If I had to pick it would be the WC Black. He looks like a ladies man in his tuxedo. [​IMG][​IMG] Both are beautiful .

    I'm leaning towards the blue, too. I'm not a fan of a comb on a Polish. It's not an outright fault, but preference will be given to a bird without a comb at the shows. It's really hard to judge what a bird will grow up to be at this age though, so I can't comment too much on type. That and I still have a lot to learn myself. [​IMG]
