    pullet or cockeral? This is actually the heaviest of the bunch, but very timid and less vocal.

    and...is it normal for there to be some white feathering in the wings?

    If it helps, I believe she is close to 9 weeks

    Well, I think that it MIGHT be a roo, it looks like it might be getting an "umbrella" crest. No way to trust my opinion, though, this is just a guess . . . [​IMG]

    OH and yes...that white feathering in the wings is normal.

    These Polish are so hard to figure out. [​IMG] I really hope she's not a roo. Does their crest become increasingly obvious? The only one I feel sure about is the little buff laced girl.

    So...how long should I give the Polish to prove their rooness? Or do you think it's a safe assumption based on crest shape to let them go?

    If I were you I would wait a couple more weeks just to be sure and then post another picture. OH I wish you lived near me. I WANT HIM! Where did you get him from?

    maybe i'm off but i dont see any horns at all or waddle developments. my guess would be a pullet. but the 2nd profile picture with the chicken looking at the camera made me think roo with the stare of the eye. but i still think a girl.
