Oh wow, those are some big feet feathers! Loving the hairdo on the Polish(?). Beautiful babies.
No standard as such on Sultans, they show in the all other breed class at shows I think. But the polish breeders club has more info on them.
*edit* Eye color in chicks looks a bit green, but it changes to a amber yellow color as adults. At least it does in my large sultans. Gives them a evil look under all that head fluff and with those bright red devil horns as a comb on roosters.
I take excess chicks to a animal auction if I can't sell them locally. It's amazing how even there the auctioneer thinks they are polish mixes. He went to sell a cage of chicks and called them white Polish. My daughter stood up and shouted at him "THEY ARE SULTANS". He replied back, but they have polish in them don't they? She shouts back NO! THEY ARE SULTANS!. He also sold a rooster cochin bantam as a hen..but oh well. Just a funny story about how little people know about Sultans.
During the genetics trip to high school, a friend of hers stops her with the sultan hen and asks if it's a duck. She told him it's a chicken. He replied, "I'm a Mexican and I know chickens. That's not a chicken." lol
