    I rescued this little guy from TS it was gasping each breath. The other chicks were stepping all over it. They gave it to me. I really doubt think it would make. But three days of care with antibiotic water and its thriving! I'm pretty sure it's a little polish it was in the bantam assorted tub. Any ideas?

    I believe you are correct, looks like a white crested black polish.

    Sorry, I have no idea. I'm just pleased that you took the little one and nursed it back to health to give it a chance at life. Good for you! He/she is just adorable! :love

    I was wondering about the color. I thought either black white crested or blue possibly. Both seemed similar.

    That chick is so cute. Good thing you came along. I see you are teaching him early to pay your bills. Just kidding. LOL. :th:celebrate:thumbsup

    You’ll see patches of grey/blue on the back of the head and around the wing if it were a white crested blue.

    Whereas on a white crested black you won’t.

    I just got a white crested blue polish. Now I have to check the colors.

    I'll get a better picture--this was as soon as I got them home
