    I am thinking this one is my pullet...skinnier legs and poofier crest. Whaddya think??

    The next 2 pics are of my suspected cockerel! Also, take a look at their eyes in the pictures, kinda reddish, they've been like that for a while and it's both chicks like that. Normal for polish??

    The first is a pullet. And the second one, a little to early to tell for me but I'm going to go with cockerel since the crest is so different at this point.

    I think you're right but give it a few weeks and it'll be easier to tell.

    I'm not sure about the eyes, but I wouldn't be too concerned unless the bird looks like he's in pain.

    Well I have a different story. I have two polish who look similar to these two. The one with the crew cut ended up as a girl and the one with the nice pom suddenly developed wattles and his pom suddenly went wild at about 12-13 weeks.

    My other two still have nice poms and are definitely girls.

    Too early to tell. My 'mohawked' silver laced polish turned out to be a girl.
