    Hard to tell from the pic, does it have wattles? Looks like it to me. My 2 10 week olds don't have wattles yet, so if it does I'd lean toward roo.

    Nice rounded crest so far with tiny bit of wattles peeking through. I don't know Polish but, I'd say pullet at this time.

    I'm leaning towards cockerel. Quite a bit of red wattles and comb peeking through, and his(or her) crest is starting to stand straight up. I'm only familiar with Buff, but I would assume its the same for all colors of polish. Tricky with all that poof, but the red comb and wattles are pretty definitive for a roo.
