I do worry about him this winter. It gets down to -25 C at night for part of the winter. I read that Polish are not cold weather birds. I got him as a free mystery chick when I ordered my flock in February. Grandson fell in love with him as only a 10 year old boy can love a skinny cockerel with blue legs and a bad hair day every day. Einstein needs to learn to cuddle with the girls when it gets cold in January.
