http://www.mypetchicken.com/catalog/Day-Old-Baby-Chicks/White-Crested-Black-Polish-p377.aspx I have a mixed flock currently - I'm down to 5 from the original 8 that we were given. 4 hens, and 1 mixed rooster that appears to be half cochin and half RIR. (he looks like a RIR version of our cochin, fluffy feet and all. He's actually really cute.) Anyways, I wanted to add a couple more hens since our coop can accommodate them, and our cochin is acting like she might go broody... so I wanted to throw in a couple of golden buff (the sex link) chicks. They supposedly tolerate heat well and lay eggs okay. And, for kicks and giggles, the one in my link, I was thinking of adding a couple - they are supposed to be heat hardy, which will do well here. Anyways -- For those who've owned black polish, are they as funny acting as they seem? Can you tell me if they are okay layers and what they tend to be like, personality wise? I've been reading reviews on them - what i *really* wanted was silkies, but darned if they aren't *always* sold out from every hatchery i've tried to order them from.
