Hi, I have been lurking here for months, trying to figure out what my chicks are. I love this site and all the great info thank you!!! I bought my chicks on June 2 of this year at a feed store. They were just a day or two old. I have gone half mad trying to figure out their breed and sex. I have narrowed them down to some type of polish, and maybe one mottled houldan. I though I had 3 hens and 1 rooster. The rooster got waddles sooner, and has obvious pointed feathers pretty early on. He has been crowing for about at least a month. One I am fairly certain is a hen, rounded feathers and smaller. The other 2 I go back and forth on. My brown one, has pointed feathers, and has had them for a while, the last one, only just started getting pointy feathers. They both have waddles, but they are smaller than my rooster, and they grew them later. No one but the one for sure rooster crows. Please look at my pictures and tell my what you think. Thank you so much!!! Ps, no one fights. This is a rooster I am sure! My hen, almost sure. This is Noodle, maybe a rooster? This is Boo, maybe a rooster?
