    Is there such a thing?? I cannot find any pictures, or information on this variation of colour..

    I have been offered to purchase a Frizzled Chamois Polish hen, who has been running with a creole cockeral.. She says they are both pure, and her eggs should be fertile, so my thinking was to add to my stock, and hatch some eggs while they are still fertile.. which should give me a mix of some chamois and some creole...

    Or is there no such thing and I am being hoodwinked?? I have asked for pictures.. and she seems genuine enough.. Just dont want to incubate eggs and be left with mutts

    Thanks for your input beforehand [​IMG]

    The creles in the U.K. are unrelated to the creles in the U.S. and have been around longer than those in the U.S. the only ones I had ever heard about were belonging to Terry Beebe in the U.K. do a search for Beebe's Polands and you'll find there site, there are pics of their breeding stock but the pics are several years old.

    Thankyou everyone, I pick the bird up tomorrow, and plan to incubate some eggs when she has settled in and restarts laying [​IMG]

    Not bad if I dont say so myself, all mine are to young to lay, so I see buying her will add to my stock, and give me fertile eggs, all in one go [​IMG]
