    That's a tough question. Because their crests inhibit their vision, Polish tend to be picked on by the more robust standard breeds like BAs and SLWs. I used to have some Golden Polish and never could keep them with any of my chickens except my Black Silkies, so I ended up having to keep both the Polish and the Silkies together in a separate coop/run from the other breeds. On the plus side, probably the most beautiful chickens I ever had were the Golden Polish X Black Silkie offspring. They were gorgeous birds and very sweet. Good luck in figuring out what you want to do with your Polish.
