    Ain't she a pretty girl!! She is a cuddle bug too. Her cap is actually much thicker but I gave her a haircut (after molt of course) so she can see. Poor baby was very skiddish and walking into things.

    Could she be a poor colored Black Crested White Polish?

    I was thinking black capped white too but her polka dots and black tipped tail just screams Spitzhauben. Teacher I am sorry to hear about your Polish. Such a bummer. Dolly has been laying for a month and doing great-almost everyday. The eggs have a pinkish tone and fit perfect on an English muffin. Her personality is dynamite. Lets little kids pet her and pick her up.

    she's a black crested white polish. 99% of this variety aren't properly colored as the genetics to get it right are very difficult. some lines has spangled spitz put into them a long time ago but it still comes back through. I had a trio once I bought at auction and the male was pretty much a white spitz in appearance. she could also be a b.c. white x silver lace. laced to non laced cross often produces some spangling.

    Thanks, okay so she is a Polish after all. I was hoping she was Spitz. Don't know why. Do you see many like her? I also have a silver laced Cochin and heard they are rare. Is that true?

    Quote:I used to see quite a few of them at auction in Iowa but other then that no. As for the silver laced cochins it depends....if you're talking really good looking ones then yes very rare, if you're talking your average hatchery stock then not as rare.
