    I would imagine the golden polish to be all buff colored, while the golden laced to be buff with white lacing, or white with gold lacing.

    Actually, Golden is usually just an abbreviated way to refer to a Gold Laced--which is a deep gold-feathered bird with black lacing (a buff bird with white lacing is a Buff Laced). There is no recognized color of "Golden" in Polish, but if you've come across the two being advertised by the same place/person, I suppose they might have non-standard colors/mixed varieties and may be calling one color Golden? Otherwise, I would think it safe to assume that if you've seen Polish referred to as Goldens, that this is referring to recognized/standard color of Gold Laced and they are both the same.

    I hope that's a Golden - it's beautiful. I ordered the Golden Polish from MM. I have 3 that are 5 weeks old and 3 more that were sent on Saturday. I'm new to all this so started with several different breeds. I think these are going to be one of my favorites.

    I just got 4 golden polish at a Chicken swap, my whole family fell in love with his looks. Seller said the chicks were golden polish, I hope they turn out like my pic above. This one was found in a road ditch in the winter, unfortunately he got sick and died a few days after we found him...
