    we are told this is a GL Polish...
    she is about a week old...

    I seen a few other polish pics where they already had top feathers, where they said it was at 2 wks..?? is that right? my li'l one shows NO sign of ANY top feathers..just fuzz still..I thought it may be way too early for top hat feathers...
    I'm taking my li'l one back to the school in about a month for a "this is what they look like a month later" class...

    I was hoping she'd have top feathers by then?? when do those truly start coming in??

    Here is "Polinda" (my son thought he was being "cute" naming her that lol)

    Looks about right to me, although i can't really verify gold laced. Feathersite.com will show you additional photos of polish chicks.

    Crest feathers will come in at about 2-3 wks.
