    I love how they look but I wish I could calm mine down. Chicken sedatives anyone? They are sweet once I have them in hand and have calmed them down but they try to break their necks when I need to be in the coop cleaning bedding and feeding. Poor frazzled nerve babies.

    Ive got a silver laced polish chick (seems to be a pullet). Going to pick up 2 more pullets tomorrrow (golden laced). Ive got a male in mind for them when theyre a bit older if he's still for sale...

    It's dark out now, but I'll get some in the morning. I put her in with 2 other small young OE pullets (even though shes a bit big) because the bigger hens were picking on her so shes a bit plucked. She gets along great with the other 2 though and I dubbed her the new Zapdos (since the third OE pullet mysteriously died). Pokemon fans should get it, LOL.

    Quote:Ralph was picked on at first when she was smaller, then we got 2 buff orpingtons. They took up for her, every time she was picked on the 2 buffs went after the ones that were bullying. Now she handles her own!

    Are polish mixes allowed?? [​IMG]

    My two girls are about 10 weeks old now (hatched March 24th), mom was a white polish/white leghorn mix and dads are some kind of polish, I assume? - no idea!

    Funny what genetics can be like [​IMG]

    This is Iris, she's bossy, inquisitive, brave and very sweet & gentle:

    Lafonza is my wild child, a bit nervy and doesn't like to be approached too much - oh well!
