    I have two polish chickens that I hatched myself. I think I have one Rooster and one pullet. But if anyone can help me out I would appreciate it!

    The first two pictures are what I believe to be the pullet. The third is one of both of them and the rest are the ones I believe to be a rooster. They are almost 10 weeks old.

    I'm actually thinking pullet on both of them.

    Both of them look like pullets to me, too.

    They would have larger, redder combs and wattles. Their crest feathers are usually more pointy, and not as fluffy. There may also be beginnings of saddle feathers near the tail.

    So one of these polish ladies (?) now has this comb looking thing on her head. Literally one day she didn't have it and the next day it was there. I tried to get some close up pics of her head so you can see what I'm talking about. One has it, the other doesn't.
