    I am interested in the Polish breed. I have a couple of questions...

    1:Are they good for a backyard flock?
    2:Does a hatchery quality polish lay pretty well?
    3:How large do they get?
    4:Can anyone show pictures of their Polish that they got from a hatchery

    thanks

    Laree,
    What kind of chicken is the second one from the left in the last picture? I have two that look exactly like that.

    Are all chickens with poofy feathers on the tops of their heads polish or polish x? I have several with poofies, but not not as outrageous as yours.

    OEGB-- old english game bantam.

    NO- there are several crested breeds. I don't know them all...but I think:

    (sorry about spelling)
    Polish
    Silkies
    Showgirls
    Crevecours
    brabanters (I think have little crests)

    You know, just check out the BYC breed database. You'll see a bunch there if you just scroll through [​IMG]
