    Hello everyone. I have a few questions regarding the breed Polish tolbunts. I won a contest and am having the eggs shipped to me in the spring. This is my first time having eggs shipped to me and also am new to this breed. I see they have a lot of head feathers. I was wondering if there is any information anyone can give me about this breed? And also about shipped eggs. Like when they do get here do i let them rest before adding to the incubator? Thank you! ^_^

    polish need waterers not buckets in the winter for watering because there heads will freeze and also there no good for meat or egg production unless there in a heated barn or shed they stop laying in the winter for me there pretty much just for show but I've herd that tulbonts are more money then other breeds of polish

    Thanks you guys! my hens stop laying in the winter too so that doesn't bother me one bit. basically they will be just pets on my farm and an egg here and there.
