Now I know there isn't a breed called "Afro Chicken"

    [​IMG] THANKS! I bought her off this lady last week because I thought she was pretty. She's a crazy one, she has flown over my 6 foot fence twice already and fell in the pool once, not exactly good when were trying to keep the chickens on the down low.[​IMG][​IMG]

    I don't have any Polish, but I assume they can tolerate a wing trim and possibly a top-knot trim so she can see, right?

    Once she's accepted by the flock, her desire to fly over the fence will diminish.

    Hmm, I wonder if she will ever be accepted. I bought her and my two other girls from the same lady, so they have been together for some time. She is on the bottom rung as far as pecking order goes. Should I try to get another Polish to keep her company?
     
  10. Doesn't have to be another Polish... Chickens dont discriminate.....LOL
