    I posted them in a polish thread but didn't get any responses, hoping it'll be seen here instead. Anyone care to guess at these? I know polish are hard. They two months old now. Sorry about the potato quality pics, had to go visit the coop in the dark to get closeups. TIA

    Smooth White - Boy?

    Frizzle Laced - ? Doesn't act like a boy, very pointy head feathers though

    White Head - ? Smaller than the others but given they are hatchery quality that may not mean anything.

    White Frizzle - ?

    Okay, even thought I've never owned a Polish, I'll venture a guess that the top one is a boy....anytime you have that much pink/red in comb and wattles at 9 weeks, it's almost always a roo.

    The rest could be pullets...

    My highly Polish uneducated guesses.

    I'd say it looks like the top white one is a boy, but with Polish is hard to tell, I didn't know I had a polish roo until he started to crow lol!

    The smooth white one looks like your only cockerel, for now.

    Thanks Everyone, it looks like there is a consensus on 'smooth white' so I'll start looking for a home for him. I'll post update pics on the others in a few weeks :)
