Oh my gosh! How freaking cute! How old is she? I don't have any experience sexing polish chicks. I have one, but she is only 2-3 weeks old.

She is around 6-7 weeks old I believe. I didn't get her at days old like I did my other chicks.. I named her Elvira, but I am started think she may be an Elvis.. I guess time will tell. :) She is a very goofy chick! We could watch her for hours!! I do have to point out that she has ONE black random feather on her head!! :D

They say that the roosters do is usually goes at an angle towards the back and is more oblong. The hens do is usually more "all around". She looks like a hen to me, but Polish are tough ones to know that early with any great certainty. She's gorgeous though! And I think she knows!

The thick legs as a chick make me think roo. But now that s/he's bigger, you should be able to look at the feathers over the saddle (the lower back) which point towards the base of the tail. In a male they're pointy and the edges go shiny (like a rooster's hackle feathers) but in a female they're round-tipped with no shiny edge. Hope this helps!
