I am questioning the gender of the 2nd, because my Polish (the ones that were actually supposed to BE Polish) cockeral, same age, had a much different, almost "stringy" crest with large wattles, while this one has neither. I got them from Ideal Hatchery, and over 50% of my entire order was incorrect. BTW, everything I ordered (except the ducks) were St. Run, if that tells you had bad it was! It was a small order, too. I ordered 2 mallards, received Rouen. One of the d'Uccle's I ordered came the wrong color, the frizzle I am told is a double frizzle, and the two sultans that I ordered are Polish. You are positive the second is a cockeral?
The pic is deceiving, sorry. I tried to get a better close up, but I will have to wait until I have an extra set of hands to hold him/her still. The saddle feathers are rounded, but the pic makes them look pointed because of the buff point with white lace. I was wondering if that was what made you say roo. I had originally thought them both to be cockeral because of crest formation, but that has changed drastically in the last 2 weeks. I guess I will keep my fingers crossed for no crowing! Thanks everyone!
