    Can anyone help me tell the sex of my polish chick? I think I am trending towards a cockerel but kind of thought some more opinions would be nice. Here he/she is.

    Looks like a cockerel so far. How old is it?

    Don't worry he's a polish. He probably won't crow too loud. [​IMG]

    ita a rooster because the hens have a perfectly round cottonball on their heads and the roos have spiky sort of hairs sticking out in all dirrections like a firework explosion

    Quote:Actually, bearded varieties do not have a perfectly round crest in females, especially hatchery quality. They're also quite pointed and "crazy" looking in appearance.
