At what age can you tell the sex of a polish chick? Mine are 4 weeks right now.
Polish are tricky. Some you can sex at six weeks but it usually takes a while to know for sure. Ways to tell are to look at the wattles, crest, or feathering. A hen will have more of a round poof for a crest, no signs of wattles at an early age, and round feathers. Hope this helps!
Yes they can be very to be most accurate 8 to 10 weeks is best.
post a picture! it might help more.
Normally males have a more spiky rockstar crest than females who have a rounded smooth crest
I was wondering the same thing!! I have 2 that are about 9 weeks old, and they have a more rounded crest, but they're getting wattles already. Sorry, can't post pictures yet. I'm praying that they're both pullets!!!
are the wattles big or are they just starting to develop?
They're just starting to develop. Within the last 2 weeks.
Males can come in with rounded crest sometimes. Mine looked like a female but had huge wattles by 6 weeks old and when he molted at 10 weeks his spikey hair came in.
