    These are my first chickens!! Everyone else I believe is a hen so far, but I really think the buff polish might be a roo. He/she acts differently than the others. The dominique doesn't act different but has noticeably pinker wattles and comb from his/her sister. Thoughts?

    Dom looks female, although that Buff Polish is definitely a bit suspicious. Crest is henny but wattles and body are rooster-ish.

    Both look like hens to me, my buff polish have a bit more flowing caps than other varieties.

    Looks like pullets all around to me, but I'm the first to admit I'm not a Polish expert.

    They both look like pullets.

    Definitely a pullet on the Dominique, and I'm thinking pullet on the Polish as well.

    Thanks for the replies! It's good to have some reassurance from people with more chicken experience... I bought sexed chicks so they should all be female. Hopefully my buff polish will lay an egg sometime around next February!
