    I've got about 50 3 week old babies going. 10 are Polish. the other I can kinda guess the sex - combs are growing etc.. LOL bu tthese polish that my hatchery gave me for free . . . they are the goofiest looking things! Do the males even get combs? Some are bigger and getting more feathers faster - I'm guessing these are the boys but any ideas from experts or experienced chick mommies?

    Although it becomes difficult to sex with combs, you'll notice that the crest feathers will differ by gender. Males will have wild, dread-locked crest feathers while females will have bowl-shaped, poofy afros. You may have to wait until they're at least 2 months before you're able to tell without doubts. They have a way of fooling ya...

    You could try posting pics but three weeks is still very young.
