    I need to know the sex of this little one. S/he is about 5.5 weeks old. Can anyone help?

    Welcome to BYC!
    There is no blatant wattle development/color or emergine while "do" just yet - but this photo alone is not really sufficient for gender assessment. You'll need to take a photo that shows the whole bird, in a natural standing position, taken from the side profile.

    I've had no experience with black polish chickens, but looks like a hen.

    It's young yet, but that amount of comb and the red wattles are pinging my roo-dar pretty hard, sorry.

    Well ... how's this Easter Egger looking to you? This one will be 6 weeks tomorrow.
