    I finally got my polish frizzle pullets. Or at least I hope they are both pullets. They are around 3 months old. I have a few questions, and I will also attach a few pictures and you guys can give me your opinions.

    1. How high do these fly? Do I need to clip wings.
    2. they have leg bands, will they ever get too tight?
    3. since they are 3 mo. and have not been handled alot, how do I make them FRIENDLY pets?

    I think they are both pullets...what is your opinion?

    OMG! They are gorgeous! [​IMG] I have lots of frizzles, but these are adorable too! I have a few buff-laced polish also. Where did you find them?

    Mine fly pretty good, but not for a long distance. I never clipped any of my polish's wings.

    Leg bands shouldn't get tight if they're the right size.

    Just give them treats and pet them alot! they are special!

    They look like pullets, but sometimes its hard to tell.

    Hey Carole, thanks for the comments and quick response. I FINALLY found the from Larry Glenn, He is out of Alabama. These 2 are a mix of one of his birds, and one of Marshas birds. I will eventually put them in with my silkies, but for the next few days they can just meet though the fence. When you say they fly a little bit, is that little bit over my 6ft fence or??? lol

    Wow thanks everyone [​IMG] I am thinking of possibly breeding them next year. When I ordered these two I went back and forward and over and over, on if I should get a roo too lol. But, since im not sure of the gender of my silkies yet I didnt want any fights. So maybe next year I will give it a try for the first time? Who knows haha??

    Mine don't fly that high! BUT, when I go outside--LOOKOUT! There's a chicken rush towards me, and the polish are always first. I HAD a buff laced roo, but something (?) happened to him and he was dead the next day. Maybe I'll try my hens with a frizzle roo.....NEXT spring.
