    Looks like a silver laced Polish bantam, but I could be wrong. I don't know too much about Polish chickens, but there is a lot of folks on here that do. I am sure you will hear from them! Congrats! [​IMG]

    Yup, a silver laced polish. Whoever sold you that chick needs their head examined. BR chicks and silver laced polish chicks look nothing alike!

    You guys are amazing! Thank you so much. I am tickled to hear that she is a coveted bird for her beauty - I find her quite comical.
    Anyone know how she is at laying?

    Oh dear. We were starting to wonder about "Penguina's" early morning, throaty calls.
    We live within city limits and roosters are forbidden here.

    Anyone want to trade a laying hen for a big-hair band drummer bad-ass?
    (I live in southwest colorado).
