I have an 8 week old polish that I think is a roo based off the sad attempt at a crow and the waddle development, but the tail is very small and it was VERY small when we got "him" (about an inch and a bit tall). Anyone have any opinions? If he is really a he, I can't really keep 2 Roos unfortunately.

I would love for it to be a pullet after all! On the top picture, would those head feathers be considered pointy or am I just seeing what I'm dreading?
I've had alot of Polish (Favorite breed) and I'm seeing a pullet from the pictures. At this age the crest would be way pointier and all if it was a roo.
It looks like a pullet shaped crest to me,if it was a roo it'd have a crazy hair do lol

Sweet! What about the crowing? I have a bantam coching that I KNOW is a roo, and the polish attempts to copy it. Granted, you can tell the difference between each bird's crow. The polish also has a "personality" compared to the other polish who is currently getting ALL the feathers plucked out of it. Sorry for all the additional comments

I'd say you've got a boy... I'm seeing the start of streamers on the chick's crest.

Polish are LOUD! I wouldn't recommend keeping him if you have neighbors around.

Thank you LovePolish2! I am hoping that the little "tomboy" is just sending mixed signals because its hatchery stock. My other polish hen took almost a year to lay. I will for sure be updating with more pictures!
