    I was pretty sure that I ordered all pullets, but in looking at these, and the golden polish, I am wondering if we got some roo's too. Anyone help? Their feathers look different enough that I just wonder if it is possible I have a roo too. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I would say the first one looks like a hen, the second looks like a roo.

    Sometimes the hatcheries make an error. I think its like 1 in 10 they get wrong. Not too bad, actually.

    Polish #1 crest looks like pullets but her hackle feathers seem pointy to me
    Polish #2 is a rooster
    Would like to see pictures of the whole bird?

    Thanks for the replies, will head out for whole body pics, will grab some of the goldens too.
    Ok lets try these, I have body shots of 4 birds, I am thinking I have 3 roo's and one hen, what do you all think.
