I have 2 solid black polish hens and a GL polish roo that I bought as chicks this spring from TSC. I have been wondering about them, I didn't think polish were solid black. Thanks for posting this.
By the way. Those two black hens and the golden laced rooster are for sale as a trio only if anyone in Ga. is interested in buying them and picking them up. I am in Alapaha Ga. I'll try to get pics of them later.
Well, now just because it looks like one doesn't make it one. You really can breed a black Polish as well but I am not sure they would breed true (someone on ebay told me that they bred a golden Polish with some other color Polish and all the babies were black). I think you would have to hatch out a few to be sure if they were crevecoeur.
The only difference I see is that crevecoeurs actually come in a black. I know there has probably been black polish created by now. But if he was a Golden laced bred to another variety, you would certainly think he would have gold leaking in his hackles.
self black polish can be created in a few different ways, but generally the males take a few generations to become solid black. I used to have some but quit breeding them. the main difference between a black polish and a crevecouer is crevecouers have red earlobes and polish have white. there's also size and a slightly different bodytype.
