I plan to place my order with MM this weekend for day old female chicks. Placing an order for 25 and splitting it with my sister, so we'd end up with about a dozen. My husband really, really wants to have a coop full of the crested polish ones. So my plan was to get an order with an assortment of colored polish chicks. Any reason why I shouldn't? I know that you may have to trim their crests or put them up in a pony tail so they can see. One guy in Agway told me that their crests will get wet when they drink in the winter and then their heads will freeze and they will die if you aren't careful about it. That I can manage. Any other oddities of this breed I should be aware of before placing the order? We plan to keep them for eggs. And then as pets Since we would not have the heart to cull them when they stopped laying.
