    I have 2 golden polish and 2 silver polish chicks that are about 5 weeks old. I don't know if they are boys or girls. The 2 golden and one silver have longer tails. The silver with the longer tail has a little more developed comb, so I assume I have 3 roos and one pullet. Can anyone help??

    It's hard to tell, but it looks like you may have a pair of each color - two males and two females. On Polish, the crest is a main thing to check. If the crest is "wild" it is a boy, if the crest is smoothed back and rounded, it is a girl...

    No clue, but your camera case is exactly the same as mine... sorry, I get distracted easily.
