I just recently got 4 Buff Laced Polish chicks and I've been able to find a Polish thread but I can't seem to find one devoted solely to the Buff Laced Polish so I'm starting this thread for all the Buff Laced owners out there! Mine are only a little over a month old now but they're already some of my favorites! They're such sweet little things and I love the look of them! I'd love to learn more about these beautiful birds so please feel free to post pics or thoughts or stories about your Buff Laced Polish! I've got lots of questions about them but I've been having difficulty finding info on just the Buff Laced. Most of what I find is info on the Polish breed in general, not any specifics. I'm wondering when the lacing will start to show?? And how to tell the roo from the pullets? Out of the 4, one of them has darker coloring-more of the buff color whereas the other 3 are cream colored- in the pics I've seen the roos seem to be darker than the females. Is this true, and if it is, is the darker coloring in the chick a good indicator that it's going to be the roo? I've been trying to look at the comb color but all 4 of them seem to have a pinkish colored comb and I can't tell a difference. And at what age do they generally start laying and how long do they keep at it? And (sorry, last question for now, I promise!) How many eggs a week is average? I've read everything from 2 a week to 6 a week! I can't seem to find a more definitive answer to that and I figure poeple who have them know better than anyone! Here's some pics of mine (some decided to take a dust bath in mud where I watered some plants in their run, so excuse their dirt!): I'm not sure how these pics will be arranged when this posts, but in the 3rd pic(shows all 4 of them pecking at a piece of baked potato) the top left chick is the darker one that I'm wondering about being a roo. It doesn't show well in the pic but he's actually noticeably more of a buff color in natural light. That buff colored chick at the very top is a buff orp, just to let you know so you don't think it's the darker one I was talking about! Thanks for any help and advice in advance and I'm looking forward to seeing and hearing about everyone's birds!
