I have two pavlovskaya hatched from chicks about 15 weeks ago. First seemed to be pullets but now growing what I think are saddle feathers. They are daft chickens indeed - have had trouble finding a lot of information on them, they seem to be uncommon particularly in USA where the 'polish' (related breed?) seems to be more common?
These are my two (black/gold pavlovskaya) one doesn't have the 'breed standard' beard, though his sickle feathers are nicer imo. 7.5 months old. they are noisy, stupid and good flock defenders. but they have a lot of character still, lol.
