    Polish are pretty funky birds. They are one of the few crested varietys of standard and are very unique. The lay white/cream eggs. And the most common colors are...
    White Crested Black
    White
    Silver Laced
    Golden Laced
    Buff Laced

    some not so common colors are...
    Red tailed black
    White Crested Blue
    Black Crested White

    Could you please describe what the birds look like. Then I might be able to narrow it down some.
    Enjoy your top-hatter chickys they are awesome!

    the yellow head with black on it's back is probably a White Crested Black Polish.. Here's a pic of mine...does it look similar?

    I see...2 White Crest Black Polish. And what looks like a Mottled Houdan. Look them up on Feathersite.com or google. They are another crested standard breed.

    Quote:Sam, those are my pics, not kansas_twister's. And yes, you are correct. They are WCB Polish and Mottled Houdan.
