    I have 2 young buff-laced Polish chicks, about a month old. I thought this might be too young to tell the gender, but their heads lookg fairly different in both puff and comb area, so I'm hoping maybe I have one of each. Anyone care to guess?

    Not possible to tell right now because their crests are just starting to grow in. Post pics in another 3-4 weeks and we could give you a definite answer [​IMG]
    Round pouffy crests = girls
    Wild messy spiky crests = boys
