    Are there other breeds that have beards other than EE's and Polish? Could I just have some Polish with the beards and crests bred small? Do EE's generally have red earlobes? Or can they also have white since they are somewhat of a mixed up a breed?

    Thanks!

    Quote:Other breeds with beards: D'uccles. Faverolles, I'm sure that there are a half dozen more.
    There are so many different varieties of Polish. Look around at some of the birds by breeders here on BYC... you'll see all kinds.
    EE's can have, white, red, greenish and other colored ear lobes. It's one of the great things about EEs. you can get almost anything.

    Brabanters have beards too. They are a rare breed here in the US though. There are others. Go to feathersite.com
    to see all kinds of birds.
