    I received a shipment of chicks that contained both Polish and non-crested breeds. All of the Polish are not as active, and kind of slow (maybe not too bright?) They are eating and drinking well, no pasty butt or anything. Just wondering is this something normal for the breed? The other regular chicks I have in with them are very active and quick.

    Hi - I'm a total newbie, but I have one Polish in my mixed batch of eight 1 week old chicks, and at this point she seems to be the top girl. She's very active and aggresive and the first into everything.

    But I don't have too much experience!

    Thanks!
