    I just got these chickens and I'm not sure what the white one is. I has black feathers scattered within the white. I believe the one in the back is a Polish. I did get a few Sultans and it is possible that he is not a pure breed but the other 8 I recieved from the same person were. Any ideas.

    Here are some of the others I got. I believe they are a Sultan, D'uccle, and bantam chochin. All pullets.

    I think all of your guesses are right on the mark. Sultan and Polish in the first pic, Sultan, Porcelain d'Uccle, and Birchen Cochin. Very sweet. [​IMG]

    The white one in the first picture, does not have much of a crest and has black feathers mixed in. Can it still be a sultan? Thanks for the verification of the others.

    It's possible it's mixed with another breed but it could just as likely be a poor (from a serious breeders standpoint- I think it's adorable [​IMG] ) example of a Sultan.

    If that first one is full grown, I'd guess it's a mix of a Sultan and a non-crested variety.
