    I got the Rare Breed Special at Murray and I only got one Polish. Most of the other birds I got more than one and the boys stick out from the girls now (8 weeks).

    That is a pullet. You might want to trim the feathers from her eyes so she can see better. They can't see from above and when their eyesight is hindered they can be more skittish than normal. Trim her bangs as needed to help her out.

    Cockerals look like spikey punk rockers. Pullets have a pwoder puff hair-do.

    that is a pullet. Missprissy is right. The roos have a more punk rock hair do and the pullets are more puffy and full.

    How do you trim the feathers? Scissors, wire cutters? Or do you pluck them :eek:
