    I can't decide...:)

    We're also getting a Barred Rock, Salmon Faverolle, and EE with her.

    oops, i change my vote!
    I voted before i read what other chickens you were getting.
    I love polish they are my favorite, but they can easily get picked on by other chickens so i wouldn't really advise them in a flock with other non-crested chickens.

    I change my vote to Cochin!

    Yeah :). We might get one of them instead of silver laced wyandotte. I'm not sure.

    I picked brahma because I have a couple of them and they are really sweet and lovable. They are only about 8 months old and just started laying last month.

    Cochins are just the sweetest. Here is my 5 year old daughter Sophie with Luna an almost 9 month old Cochin Bantam.

    I voted for the speckled sussex. THey are pretty. No messy head poofs of feathered feet that could get dirty.

    Careful with the Polish.. All the ones we have ever had have been very flighty and shy. They are very beautiful birds though.
