I am new to raising chickens. I have a very small flock of 3. I have 1 Polish and 2 Spitzhaubens. My Polish was one of my original flock, the other 2 disappeared. The 2 Spitzhaubens are new but have taken to my yard and Polish hen very well. It's been fun getting to know them and learning how to take care of them. I'm also glad I found other backyard chickens enthusiasts.
