    There are many people in the US with Polish chickens. Maybe somebody who raises them will chime in here. You may want to include the breed name in your subject line to catch their attention.

    I'm not sure what you are talking about there, but we have the bantams in several colors. You may wany to check the Polish Breeder's club. But never heard of "Old Polish"

    Good luck

    I googled it and nothing came up, is there any chance you mean other crested breeds like maybe spitzhauben, or brabanter?

    I am from East Europe and have to say that what Feathersite has listed as Old Polish Crested Hens and Posavska(Posavina)Crested Hens are nothing but mutts.There use to be Old crested chickens but no breed . In the birds shown at Feathersite the only old genetic part is the crest. THe rest of the birds is/are Plimout Rocks,Rhode Island and New Hampshire,a little Leghorn too. You can create these birds easy using Rock,Orpington,New Hampshire and Polish for the crest.

    Wow... I can see why your saying they're mutts... Is this kinda like the whole EE thing, or is there supposed to be some sort of uniformity to the "old polish" breed?

    they are a barnyard breed. similar to a working class dog or horse, there's a looseknit group of similar traits they all share that makes them a breed but probably not anything as concrete as a show standard. afterall, an alternate name listed basically means "Polish courtyard hen" - courtyard isn't too far from barnyard [​IMG]
