At 3 or 4 Months, Hen or Rooster?

Here’s a Helpful Hint on How to Tell

Polish Rooster, 4 months. Look at the thickness & sturdiness of the legs.
Polish Pullet/ Hen, 4 months. Notice the thin dainty legs and feet.

I chose this particular breed of chicken because sexing them is quite apparent by looking at their legs & feet. However, some breeds aren’t that easy, the Silkie in particular. But most heavy breeds like the Rocks, and Orphingtons it’s pretty obvious. Hope this little trick is helpful!
