    so i was thinking about gettig a polish chick... i never really see any polish chicks, are they hard to find or hard to raise? is there a catch? i think it would be so fun to have something different and so interesting looking to add to my batch of chicks. any info would be much appreciated.

    polish chicks are awsome. they are easy to raise. easy to sex out.

    one way is the male feathers are darker than the females, say you look at 2 golden polish, check out there tiny feathers growing in on the wing a male has a dark color to them a female has a lighter brighter color to them, and the same with the other color polish.

    When I firwst started to keep chickens, a friend down the road gave me some polish chicks she had hatched. They were easy to raise and very friendly. They became great pets. Good luck!
