    What personality! Did he come from a hatchery? Was he completely yellow at birth, or did he have other colors? The new feathers and crest make me think its a Golden Polish, but I think their chicks hardly have any yellow on them. Have an earlier pictures?

    Thanks guys. I did a search on the breed you mentioned and it may very well be a polish puff. He is a very social and outgoing little guy. I will keep updating with his new looks and hair styles!

    Country road, this is the earliest pic I have of him. There is a guy in the town next to me that just got a big shipment of chicks and I happen to hear about him and went and bought some new chicks.

    If the chick came from a hatchery, finding out which one will help you narrow it down. That's how I determined the breeds of some of my friends' chicks *haha*

    I would say it is definitely a Polish. It has the Mili Fleur pattern, so it could be a Tolbunt Polish. (not sure of spelling).
