    i was very lucky to receive some unusual chickens yesterday,i dont know if there is a standard for them or just a matter of crossing . i am waiting on santa to get me a camera so i will describe the best i can. #1, ivory/cream colored polish roo, looks full blooded except young and smaller, #2 white, with soft black barring polish roo, looks full blooded, #3 looks like the tolbunt polish hen but was told by breeder was a cross of golden polish and a barred rock, does not look full because of a shorter tail, #4 white headed black frizzle polish but part of top picked off and short tail, these may all be a result of picking, i also received a old english blue hen and a quail antwerp( i cant spell) belgian hen, both bantam. all for 24 dollars. now beside the fact that i got a really good price, did i get good chickens?

    cream one is probably a buff, the white with barring is a cuckoo, the white headed one is a white crested black

    Without seeing the birds it's a little hard to comment on their quality. However, I've always believed the adage "you get what you pay for".

    oh, i belive that too but in this situation it is an elderly man thats having a hard time now. he is a breeder and usually dont even let people in his coops but i had a hard time with some chick delivers and the post office called him and he did invite me me. i live in a really small town. and i do think he was just being very kind. the p.o. lost the chicks and one died. tolbunt polish they were. so the one i got that looks like a tolbunt but i know its not. golden lace polish and barred rock i think he said, do people breed these on purpose?
