I have three young chickens that are almost five months old. In my batch of six chicks this year three are looking like girls and three I am just not sure about. I've posted two threads before this and it seemed like the collective answer was they were all pullers.
But my Speckled Sussex and my Black Sumatra have developed a slight curve in their long tail feathers and the polish is just so goofy I need to triple check.
Yes I know there's no way to know the gender for sure until they lay an egg or crow but I do want an idea of what I am dealing with and how many new homes I need to find for the extra boys.

The Speckled Sussex and Sumatra are 100% pullets. Do you have any other photos of the Buff-laced Polish? I want to say pullet, but the hackles appear to have male-specific, pointed feathers and the crest is taking on that untidy, rocker-style that male Polish sport.

Her Crest was very neat and tidy like my other polish hen until I trimmed it, she could see for three days before the feathers fell into her eyes again and it's been a mess ever since.
Does this picture help?
