    I bought three Polish Crested chicks at the swap-two blacks and a blue, white crested. I have to say...I love them! They are just too cute with the little fluffy poof on the top of their heads!

    I put them in with my big blue broody girl who's mothering three chicks she hatched out. She took a look at them...then took them under her wing. I went to feed today and one was perched on her back [​IMG]


    I can't wait until they grow up. The suspense is killing me! [​IMG]

    They are so adorable! I'd love to have a couple but I've heard that the others will pick on them because they are different looking. Aww, my next flock.....

    I have 2 WC Polish. They are adorable! Everyone thinks they are the cutest of all the girls. Mine don't get picked on too much, but all the chicks have been together since the beginning, so if one starts to peck the Polish, they just hit back! [​IMG]

    I just got 2 white crested black polish and couldn't resist their puffy little heads either! Soo excited to see them all grown up! We should exchange pics as they grow and try to figure out their sexes!

    I love my Polish. When I had to give up all of my last flock I was crushed. I loved them so much. I'm just rebuilding my Polish now. So far none of the shipped eggs have hatched for me, but hopefully when I start buying again I will get a few. Untill then I still need to look for a couple of hens or even pullets. I could hatch those little guys all day long.

    Polish are sooooo addicting! I started with one and now have 8 less than a month after I got my first one! Their little poofy heads are so adorable and irresistible! [​IMG]

    I have a little lone silver lace polish chick. Unfortunatly it IS difficult to keep it with other chicks, even ones its own age or smaller because they pick out its crest. It had just begun to grow back so nice and I went out there to feed them today and it was all gone again... poor baby
