    Not sure if it's too early too tell if my 2 week old silver laced polish will have muffs or a beard, just curious I guess!

    And just a few more pictures of the chicklets. They are spending the 70+ degree days in the coop, they have an ecoglow out there if they need it as well. We will hopefully get some outside time in as well!

    Should I be concerned that the barred rock has such a pronounced comb compared to all the others? Or do barred rocks just grow combs faster?

    Cute pics! I don't think the polish will have muffs or a beard.

    Chick fluff frequently mimics adult plumage. I think your Polish will have a beard, I also think it's a boy.

    Upon further inspection he does have a beard. Sorry!

    Somebody on this site said that when the pompom (crest) fuzz is round in shape, the chick is a pullet, and when it is oval, the chick is a cockerel. I have found that to be true with with my Polish chicks, anyway.
