    Hi, I need help sexing these two chicks. The white chick is a polish and the other one is a PolishXHoudan. I think the white polish is a pullet but I'm not sure about the other one. They hatched 1/15. I was thinking about doing a DNA test so I will know for sure whether they are hens or not. Thanks

    A DNA test would, imo, be a waste and entirely unnecessary given that you are already at the 6 week point and will have definitive gender ID in a matter of weeks anyway by simply waiting and allowing them to mature a bit more. At the moment neither is showing any blatant cockerel signs, imo.

    For now, they look like pullets.
