    Anyone ever see a Polish chick (pure or not) hatch without a crest only to have it grow in later?

    No, I haven't seen that, but I bet they would look veery interesting! The crest might still be there, it would just be a very small crest.
    Have you recently had a chick hatch like this? It may not be a pure breed, since a crest is the defining trait of a Polish chicken...

    I was warned that the chicks were possibly not full Polish. Very excited and curious to see what happens. [​IMG]

    I love how different mixed chickens can look- and Polish Crosses are definatly some of the cutest. You'll have to learn how to post pictures, and show me! [​IMG]

    Do they have names yet? If not, may I suggest Mo, and Hawk? [​IMG]

    That would have been AWESOME! They are named, though. [​IMG] Mereda, Rue, and Snow.

    Yes, indeed! Keep us updated, and post pictures if you can! I love Polish, and I would absolutely love to have a coop full of only afro-chickens one day....
