    What exactly would the chick look like if. You hatched a polish roo with black sex link, leghorn, RIR, blue asain, and austrolorp females? I put one of each in with a polish roo and the little less than a dozen of eggs are hatching today that he fertilized and i havent seen any that look like polish babies? Thanks in advance :)

    First generation crosses will likely be crested but likely won't have vaulted skulls.

    Never owned a polish, but I think that their bump on their heads when they are chix are the tiny crests that will be in blossom when they get older.

    The head feathers on a Polish are called their crest. F1 offspring will generally have crests to varying degrees, but not as large as the Polish parent.

    I raise white crested black polish. Do you know what color your polish if so I might be able to help! If not you can post a picture so I can tell you

    Polish are a crested breed. The large "poof" of feathers on their head, this is called a crest.
