    Thanks! I must get 3 of those for my new coop. They are just beautiful. OK - anyone out there have any of these for me?

    Don't mean to hijack your thread. I really can't tell the gender of your birds.

    Here's a bump to see if someone out there has an answer for you.

    The first white looks like a cockeral. Notice the streamers coming off the back of his crest? They show from the front also.

    I don't know what the cuckoo is. It is hard to say and the only one I have in that color is not even fully feathered yet. LOL My guess would be a cockeral.

    The other white silkie appears to be a pullet.

    Never raised a polish although I think they a pretty birds..so I can't say about the polish either. Are those waddles?

    Nothing like having someone tell you they think you have one pullet out of three huh? [​IMG]
