    Not quite that simple. First, is it the color or the feather type that you are most attracted to? The bird pictured is a frizzle Polish - frizzle being the feathering type. If frizzle is what you want, you have to breed for it by introducing frizzle genetics into your program. If it's the specific color that you want and/or the color AND frizzle characteristic, that is also something you would have to breed for by obtaining breeding stock of the appropriate type to use in your program.
    What color of Polish do you have now?

    I believe that's a tolbunt frizzled Polish. No need to re-invent the wheel, just search for hatching eggs and buy some.
