    I have room for two more chicks in my spring order. I've delayed ordering because I can't decide on the two chicks to add. I've narrowed it down to either silver gray dorkings or salmon faverolles, but I'm reading alot that says these two breeds are delicate as chicks. [​IMG]

    you won't regret it. My bearded buff laced polish looks like big bird and is a LOT of fun to watch.

    Quote:I want polish, but Ideal only sells their polish as straight run. Thor would not be amused should I end up with another roo; even one with a really awesome hair style.

    I would say, get the Dorking. Mine have been very hardy.

    Because of the straight run thing, I say go with both Favs. I've always wanted them but never get the opportinuty.
