    I was sent several eggs in a mix that were marked blue polish. I think 5 of these hatched and they are 3 or 4 weeks old now. I don't know anything about blue chickens. So far 4 of these look just alike. They are white with some blueish feathers mixed in and they have dark colors on their beaks. One looks different as it is just white so far.
    My question is, how should I breed these? If I breed them to each other, what will I get? The only other polish I got from this mix was buff laced polish.
    Anyway, if anyone knows anything about these please let me know.

    they sound like splash which is a mixture of blue and white and light and dark feather which is a result of breeding.

    I breed Polish, do you have a picture? It sounds to me like a mix. Blues won't be born white.

    I will take a picture for you tomorrow. They are mostly white but they do look like they are getting some blue feathers. I am really wondering what I will come out with.

  6. Hi!
    Beautiful!
    That looks like a splash to me.
    They come from breeding blue x blue, blue x splash, or splash x splash.

    Thanks, they aren't much to look at yet but I think they will be quite pretty eventually. The only other Polish I got with these is a Buff Laced Polish but there is another blue Polish that is just white as well.
