Question for those who breed or have raised multiple chicks - do their crests and breast areas get the rust colored feathers as young chicks normally? I have no experience with Tolbunts previous to this and both my chicks only have black/white feathering in top. I looked for more info online, but there isn't much to address my specific question. Thanks in advance! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

The tolbunt pattern should have 50% red, 25% black and 25% white. There should be lacing and mottling. I think you should only have solid white feathers in the wing primary feathers.

They have been an approved color in Germany and they are working out the standard here in America still.ย

There is an excellent book written by Joseph Batty called 'The Polish Breed of Poultry'.

Hello everyone! I read through the first 11 pages, but that was all. lol

ย 

Anyway. What is the best chicken to breed withย a Gold laced Polish to start the tolbunt adventure? A good friend of mine has had nothing but DIS and quitters in her incubator from shipped eggs and we're thinking it could be an inbreeding issue from the parent stock.

ย 

It sounds like Mille Fluer and Speckled Sussex are out of the question and Russian Orloffs are a big no-no. I can see Houdan working, but how many generations would it take to get good lacing back while keeping the feathers white tipped? One more question. If my friend could get ahold of a Tolbunt Rooster, cross it with gold laced hens, then back to the rooster, half the back crosses would be tolbunt, right? Thank you or being patient with all of my questions.

Can you tell me if my little frizzle pullet in front is considered tolbunt? My son is showing her on 4H at our county fair next month and I want to make sure we are describing her color variety as best as possible. Thanks๐Ÿ˜Š
