    How old do black polish need to be to lay eggs and how tall do they become at which age

    Are they bantams or standards?

    And all Polish typically lay at 25-30 weeks.

    Bantams are smaller like a silkie size
    And the standard are a normal size chicken
    Hope this helps

    Then the polish are probably bantams. Bantams don't get very big, maybe less then a foot tall?
