    I'm trying to figure out which to keep - and "who's roos?" will certainly play a part. Tell me what you are thinking on these 9 week old polish:

    #1 - White crested Splash Roo?

    [​IMG]

    #2 - White Crested Black Frizzled Roo?

    [​IMG]

    #3 - White Frizzled . . . . . Roo? (Man, I hope I'm wrong!)

    [​IMG]

    #4 - White Crested Chocolate Frizzled . . . . .? (this one's the runt of the bunch)

    [​IMG]

    #5 - White Crested Blue Hen

    [​IMG]

    #6 - White Crested ?? Is this a Khaki? Hen

    [​IMG]

    She's not white, she looks like she's been dust bathing, but some of this is her "real" color - so I'm thinking she might be Khaki?? Or just a bad white?

    Thanks everyone!! It helps to have more experienced eyes look at them. Sometimes I let my wish for one to be a hen, override what my brain is seeing [​IMG]

    I'm certainly no polish expert but I am going to say the top four photos are cockerels, the bottom three photos are pullets. They're so cool though, too bad you couldn't keep them all. I love the colors! And the frizzled polish, I used to have a white standard frizzled boy named Big Bird, he was the coolest looking bird.

    Ack! The bottom two pix are the same girl, just different views, that only gives me 2 hens. And there are three more - all cukoos, I need to choose one, but it looks like all of them are Roos too [​IMG]

    That will be 5 roos, 2 hens. My flock total will be 7 large fowl hens, 8 banty roos, 5 banty hens -- oh me oh my! [​IMG]

    Don't give up hope yet. The frizzling could be affecting the crests and making the pullets look more like roos. My take on it... #1 - roo, #2 - probably a roo, #3 and #4 - I'm undecided. 5 and 6 - definitely pullets. Can't help you with the color on #6 though, sorry.

    I dont know the frizzled breed well, never really seen any. I only know the regular breed but when I went thru your posts and gave my best opinion I too thought only the lat 2 were pullets.

    Oh askjcm2005 that would be the worst news of all - because the last two pictures are of the same bird, just different views~! [​IMG]

    I'm going to rehome the first one, since we are all in agreement about him. Plus, he's been acting kinda "Roo - ish" anyway. I'm hoping those of you who see more hens are right! I'll wait to see [​IMG]

    i change my mind I vote for 1 and 2 as roos just because the size of the wattles, if they are all the same age, cant see all the rest of them so cant say
