    I'm still new to keeping polishes. I have two pullets and one cockerel. My cockerel has been mating non-stop with my barred rock hen and I'd like to know some info about what will come out of that! Please help thanks!

    Any help here? I even just want info on normal polishes like how many eggs do they lay a week, laying patterns, molting times, mating patterns, all of the colors/patterns, hatching time, etc. Please, someone experienced help me!

    Try posting on one of the polish threads
  5. What color is the polish rooster? Male chicks will be barred with a small tassel/crest.[​IMG]

    He is a black creted black polish bantam.
  7. You will get barred males like the one I posted a pic of.His dad was a toblunt/golden laced polish and his mama was a blue cuckoo/barred olive egger.There were other genes involved and I got several colors in my cross.But with yours barred males and black females.If it was reverse,a barred male mated with white crested or black crested black polish female,all the offspring would be barred.Hope this helps.
