    My White crested black Polish rooster and an Ameraucana hen apparently like each other and she is sitting on a clutch of eggs. Has anyone heard of or seen this cross before? I'm curious what the chicks will end up looking like. LOL

    The offsrping should have some small crests anyway. Should be interesting. Thinking about doinb the cross myself.

    Post pictures when they hatch.

    The offspring will all have smaller crests than the pure polish. All will probably have the polish comb, most will have the muffs of the Ameraucana. I have polish X Easter Eggers, and polish X Araucanas. All the resulting hens lay georgous blue eggs.
