I have two polish chicks that are about a month old. I know that’s young but I’m noticing some differences already so was curious if those were signs. The biggest difference is the puff on the top of their head. One is crazy and one is very neat and tidy. Is that any indication? The top three pictures are of the chick that is about 5 days older and the bottom three pictures are of the slightly younger chick. Thanks any help is appreciated.

You have one cockerel and one pullet.

The crazy puff one is the cockerel.

Fun fact, Polish can be sexed at hatch by their crests.

So even my gold laced polish can be sexed already? They all look the same to me. Is there something specific I’m looking for? The two buff ones it was obvious their crest were different but the gold laced ones all look like Mohawks.

You're looking for a nice, well rounded, full crest for females.
