    This is our recent batch of polish chicks and I just wanted some confirmation from you wise folks [​IMG]

    They were hatched around May 15th, so that puts them about 4.5 weeks old. Some of them seem to have much less poof on top - are they something else? Some "almost like Polish" breed that I have by mistake?

    There are 9 chicks all together, some frizzle, some smooth. A mix of blacks, blues and silver I think. What is the color for the black with white "spots", would those be splash? Can they be shown, or are they a mutt type color mix?

    Thanks for the help, the 4H dd & I sure appreciate it [​IMG]

    and P.S. don't tell mamma wyandotte that these babies didn't come from her [​IMG]

    looks to be all polish to me, Looks like you have blue, black, splash, and a cuckoo or two.

    Ok, so the blue and black are easy to figure out [​IMG]

    But point me to the splash and cuckoo??

    And so the smaller poofs, are just slower growers maybe?

    Thanks for the quick replies! We've only had WC White chicks before . . . .pretty straight forward, LOL! So this batch had us doing some headscratching for sure!
