    Hi- I have 6 week old chicks and my 2 white crested black polish are developing (facially) different.

    I don't have a recent full body picture, but they appear to be similar. It is primarily the wattle development I am wondering about as they are very different.

    Thanks!

    Top is a pullet (rounded crest feathers & lack of wattle development). Bottom is a cockerel (pointed crest feathers and prominent wattle development). So you have a pair. [​IMG]
