Beaker, our wee splash Polish, laid her first egg the day before we returned from our honeymoon (Sept 14). She was 19 1/2 weeks at the time and has become a great little layer, laying us 35-gram eggs about 5x/week. What a great little bird!

Beaker is in the upper right hand corner of this pic:

I keep getting mixed messages about Polish - some of the things I read suggest they are "wacky" and difficult; other people seem to love them.

I think so, too. I have 5 Polish, and the ones that CAN see are ok. The ones that can NOT see (crest over eyes) are crazy .... simply because they can't see! I think they should all have haircuts, so they calm down..... but then they aren't as cute. Hhmmm..

Oh, by the way ..... Hooray for Beaker! Very pretty bird!

I am one of those people who love my polish girls. I have 3 hens, 2 of which are laying, and they are the best little layers. Faithfully leaving me a good sized white egg at least 5 days a week! Mine are a little wacky, but they handle themselves well. Sweet girls and I love em! I even had one of my "Fros" go broody!
