    I don't have pictures,but I have a question. Can you tell me if Polish chickens can run with and roost with standard size hens? I have 3 that were given to me,don't know yet but think I have 2 hens and a roo. They are around 8 weeks old. For now they will be kept in a holding pen. All my other chickens are free range and they come in to eat and roost in the evenings.Then they are turned loose in the mornings. I also have silkies that run with the bigger hens.

    They can. You might have to cut some of their crest if it's blocking their vision so can get around better or just leave it. I have no problems with mine running around.
