    My Golden Laced Polish is beginning to get white tipped feathers in her crest. I bought her from Meyer Hatchery as a chick. Is this common for hatchery chicks? I am anxious to see if she gets white tipped feathers all over her when she molts :0)

    Sorry, that won't happen. It will increase in the crest, and yes, it is common in hatchery stock but the only way to get a gold laced Polish with white tipping all over is with a Tolbunt. [​IMG]
