Sexing Polish Bantams
« on: August 23, 2011, 11:40 »
I've successfully hatched 5 Polish Bantams, but now I'm struggling to tell who's what! (all the ways of doing this seem to be when they're a few days old, and mine ar now 10 weeks! Also, just to confuse things, I have 3 frizzles and two smooth.
Would anyone mind lookign at the photos and seeing whether you think they're male or female?
I'll post two topics, as it's struggling to upload 4 photos.

Hi, I'm not going to be much help here but I have 2 Polish, both female that I got at 7 weeks. the fearthers on their head were very floppy and covering a lot of the face even at that early age, so it looks as though you have 2 of each, I could be well wrong here but the second photo looks more male as the head feathers are very different to what my girls looked like.

That's with regard to the Frizzles I have?
or you think both the smooth are feamles too? (There's 5 chicks/photos, and you said you guessed two of each - which makes 4).

I've been googling and it seems the males have spiky head feathers, that stick up, females have more of a helmet. It is really difficult to sex polish chicks, so if what I read is ight it looks like you have two females and 3 males. Hopefully someone in the know will come along and help.
