    I got some gold laced polish from ideal a couple weeks ago (shipped eggs just wouldn't hatch [​IMG] ). I noticed today one of the gold laced has white feathers in its crest. Anyone else ever have that happen?

    That happens alot, I think it is something in their background that shows up from time to time. They (White feathers) usually go away after the first molt.

    Shipped Polish eggs really do have a hard time hatching the air sacs seem to break easier than other bird. I find the same thing with houdan eggs as well.
