    I received 2 Polish chicks with my last assortment. I’ve never had them before and I’ll admit those crests have made them favorites in the new flock. But I’m having a little trouble determining their sex. Sorry there’s only one picture of the white, she (hopefully) ran back in the coop as soon as the camera came out. The buff is a little more social. Thanks for the help.

    Could you get pictures of their faces? I think they are both pullets but that could change based of the comb and wattles.

    I’m guessing they’ve recognized the camera isn’t food because as soon as it comes out they couldn’t be bothered with me. Of course every chick that is easily determined thinks it’s their own personal photo shoot. I’ll try again tomorrow for better pics.

    The nice rounded crest makes me think the white is a girl, the boys will have wild crests. How old are they?

    They both have nice round crests.

    Let’s hope they’re both pullets.

    Im sticking to pullet for your white one, your buff looks like a pullet too but I’d love to see a pic straight on if and when you can. ;) Both are pretty birds! :love Oh and these are my 2 boys and one girl.. the nice round crest is my girl :D

    @anderstr196 So are the Rooster’s crests more flat (like a sideways mohawk) than round?
